Public Option

Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich has made a brief video explaining the necessity of a Public Option in the final Health Insurance Reform bill. He has also been writing cogent posts on a variety of subjects, including the healthcare debate over on his blog.

President Obama will be speaking before a joint session of Congress tomorrow evening at 8:00 p.m. Now is the time to contact your senators, your congressional representative and the the White House to let them know you want the Public Option.

Here’s how to do it:

Do you need to find the contact information for your senators? Follow this link to the U.S. Senate and use the “Find Your Senators” search box in the upper right corner of the page.

Looking for your congressperson’s contact information? Click on this link to the U.S. House and enter your zip code in the upper left hand corner of the page.

If you have questions about health insurance reform (or want to find out if a rumor is true or false) you can check the White House’s webpage called Reality Check.

Another source of clarification is the Organizing for America webpage called Setting the Record Straight.

And remains an excellent location to parse truth from misinformation on a wide variety of topics, including the current healthcare debate.

psssst...Do Something!
