Public Option Turmoil:::Contact Information for the White House for the Public Option ( or Single Payer)
As of Sunday Evening there are Rumors on the Internet and MSM news this eve that the Public Option has been
" abandoned by the White House", ( and yes this is the Language that is being used). I Strongly urge all of you stay informed and read up, but also to contact the White House and Voice your Concerns and Needs, NOW. ( please do read further down as to how this Fracas started on Sunday eve, it all started with Secretary Sebelius on CNN stating that the Public Option was Not Essential...). Crooks and Liars posted the Video and then AP and NYT and CBS ran the story. ( She also then went on to expound on the Co-Op "Idea"- even though it is not a part of any bill and is not favored by most in DC or the Medical Community). And yet here is more about her message kept changing in another interview she was touting the Public Option...so she contributed to much confusion.

The White House Blog as of Sunday evening make no mention of dropping the Public Option. Do Click the Title above and it is linked to the White House Blog and do click the contact section.
Raw Story August 16th, Robert Gibbs Statement about the reform efforts, nothing about dropping Public Option.
President Obama's OP ED in the NYT this weekend does not say that the Public Option has been set aside, it clearly says that we need Change and Reform.
Here is an indication of What started this Fracas, apparently Sebelius did mis-represent or mis-speak about the Public Option and spoke of the Co-op issue ( I have seen her do this 3 times in recent weeks- I was thinking it was a mistake- but now it continues, and it has caused major issues and raised concerns about the Public Option. ) Please do read the NYT article ( that did get reported by CNN, CBS and AP), this NYT article definently is concerning....
And early Monday Am Huffington Post has an article called "White House gives Mixed Messages, that ends saying Sebelius Mis-spoke.( Which I could believe but she has been talking like that all month.
Contact the Senators too,
Here is the Contact List, do it....write and call.
And need to know WHAT kind of Letter to write , Here is an excellent letter to get ideas from....Share.
My Letter is posted below, sadly ALL the AM Papers are reporting the Public Option Thrown to the Curb by the Whitehouse, and they better Do Something Quickly, because it has turned into a huge mess in 24 hours.
If you need Inspiration about WHY we need to work on this scroll down to the RAM Medical Event Story below.
