Aetna attacked the public. We're attacking back.
Together with big allies in the Senate and partner organizations, we're pushing the entire Democratic Party to make a public health insurance option central in 2016. Then, we can pass it under a new president along with other progressive priorities like debt-free college and expanding Social Security.
SIGN THE PETITION: "Private insurance companies need competition and accountability. We want a public option! Members of Congress should support the new public option resolution and candidates across the country should endorse giving all Americans a public option."
The PCCC worked behind the scenes with senators and organizations on this strategy and we have a powerful coalition kicking off this campaign: Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), and Dick Durbin (D-IL) are leading together with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Presente, UltraViolet, MoveOn, Daily Kos, Democracy for America, the Working Families Party, the AFL-CIO, and the Campaign for America's Future. Many other senators are signing on as co-sponsors.
If support for the new resolution grows quickly, we can generate more headlines, catapult the public option into the center of the 2016 debate, and have momentum to pass this idea under the next president. Please sign today!
We're proud to be partnering on this effort with these organizations and more:
