As next week's health care summit approaches, a group of progressive senators—led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—are standing up and fighting to get a public option in the final health care bill.
Senator Gillibrand has taken the lead in pushing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to give the public option an up-or-down vote. The letter that she drafted with Senators Bennet, Merkley, and Brown already has 18 signatures and is really picking up momentum.
When a senator stands up for progressive priorities, it's really important that she hears from her constituents. In just the last few months, Senator Gillibrand has taken courageous stands on the public option and on saving the Clean Air Act.
Can you call her local office nearest to you and tell her that you really appreciate her work and are counting on her to keep fighting?
