Real Change

"I'm asking you to believe.
Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington...
I'm asking you to believe in yours."

- President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President,

Thank you! Thank you for your efforts at bipartisanship. And thank you for finally pushing back from the negotiating table and moving forward with health insurance reform. The Republicans were not acting in good faith. It was time to bring about the change we desired when we elected you and all those Democrats to Congress.

It’s a good piece of legislation. I don’t want to seem rude or presumptuous or impatient. But while the Republicans are listening to the noisy, bigoted, ill-informed minority and trying to figure out how to repeal the bill you’re about to sign, we need to push forward. We need a strong, vigorous Public Option.

Yes, I absolutely do believe in your ability to bring about real change in Washington. And yes, I believe in my ability to bring about real change in Washington as well. That’s why I’m not just saying “thank you”. I’m saying “what’s next?” I believe what’s next is the Public Option.
