Congressional Progressive Caucus Questions and Answers June 4 2009

Members of Congress who are part of the Congressional Progressive Caucus answer questions submitted by the public at

Key points were:
* These members of Congress want single-payer but don't think we can get it immediately, and so are fighting for a robust public plan to begin to solve the problem;
