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).

    Keep up the Pressure for Healthcare Reform

    This is one of the big moments. The House is just a tad short of the votes necessary to pass a healthcare bill with a strong public option (the so-called "Medicare Plus 5 formula"). Here is a list of House members who are leaning yes, undecided, or leaning no. These leaners are the ones WE have to lean on to get them to vote yes. I plan on contacting those Congressional reps who I heavily blogged for and donated to when they first ran. If any of these people are ones who represent you or who you helped get elected, pressure them now. Repeatedly!

    Lean Yes:

    * Ron Klein (FL-22): 202-225-3026, 561-544-6910
    * Dennis Moore (KS-03): 202-225-2865, 913-621-0832, 913-383-2013

    Get busy contacting these folks to make sure they vote YES on the Medicare Plus 5 formula for a public option. Remind them that THIS is one of the things we worked so hard to elect them for.
