Senators: Don't turn your backs on the public option

Dick Durbin: Betrayal

In 3 weeks, about 40 senators promised to vote "yes" on the public option in reconciliation – and that number increases every day.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) was one of those people -- but just announced that he would whip Democratic senators to OPPOSE all amendments, including a public option amendment, if offered on the Senate floor. Voting against the public option after promising to vote for it would be outright betrayal.

Can you take a moment to call your senator right now and tell them to vote "yes" on the public option and say "no" to Dick Durbin's efforts?
