Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Colorado Senator Bennet On Healthcare Reform

    Colorado Senator Bennet wrote an article for Huffington Post on Healthcare reform:

    I also believe providing patients with a public insurance option -- that increases competition and drives down prices -- would help to achieve these goals.

    Our families, small businesses, and economy need relief from the catastrophic impact of high health care costs. And we must start solving the problem this year.

    Approximately 800,000 Coloradans are uninsured. More than 70% of the uninsured in this country are in working families. American consumers pay among the highest prices for prescription drugs in the world, and health care costs have gone up 80% in the last decade alone.


    And here is a video of Senator Bennet at a Town Hall meeting:
