Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, in a letter sent Friday to two of the Senate’s strongest proponents of the so-called “public option”, has commits to holding a vote “in the coming months” on the proposal.
This is no doubt to quell deep dissatisfaction among a number of more liberal members in the upper chamber who have said the health care reform bill moving through Congress, while making critical changes they support, does not do enough.
In order to get passage of this vote, Pelosi and Reid have already promised (to reps like Raul Grijalva, AZ) to pursue single payer and force the most liberal legislation they can down American's throats unless someone stops them. Will you?
