Friday, December 18, 2009 Rallies Members to Oppose Senate Health Care Bill

The liberal group is opposing the Senate health care bill and urging Democrats to block it.

In a letter to members Friday, complained that the legislation has no government-run insurance option and no expansion of Medicare.
It urged its members to sign a petition saying, "American needs real health care reform -- not a massive giveaway to the insurance companies."

The letter also called on members to send a message to Senate progressives such as Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Roland Burris of Illinois and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin to "block this bill until it's fixed." says it has 5 million members. Liberals such as Howard Dean have widely criticized the Senate bill. (Source)
