Tell Senator Baucus NO On The Conrad Co-op Proposal!

Here's the latest idiocy from Senator Max Baucus, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, on the public option AND the Conrad so-called co-op proposal.

Baucus signaled his willingness yesterday to compromise on a controversial provision of President Obama’s health care overhaul plan in a bid to attract enough GOP support to pass the legislation in the Senate this summer with as many as 70 votes.

The Montana Democrat emerged from a morning session with key Republicans and Democrats saying he was “inclined toward” jettisoning a proposed government-sponsored insurance program endorsed last week by Obama in favor of a new proposal to create national, state and regional health care insurance cooperatives.

Republicans bitterly oppose the public insurance option, saying it would undermine the private insurance industry and lead to a national health insurance system. Some conservative Democrats also are skeptical of the public plan option, even as they and Baucus support Obama’s overall reform goals.

Total Bullshit!

Please CALL Senator Max Baucus at (202) 224-2651
Call the Senate Finance Committee at (202) 224-4515

TELL your Senators and Representatives that you are OPPOSED to the Conrad co-op proposal, and that you WANT Expanded and Improved Medicare for All in the form of Single Payer and if not that, we NEED a strong, robust Medicare-like public option in health care reform open to all citizens to enroll in with NO TRIGGERS or CONDITIONS!
