Yesterday, we added Senators Chuck Schumer (NY) and Barbara Mikulski (MD) to the growing list co-signers on the letter calling for passing a public option using reconciliation, which would keep Republicans from using a procedural trick called the filibuster to block a majority vote.

As of this morning, we have 18 Senators, 119 House Democrats, and over 300,000 Americans who have signed on to endorse this strategy as the way forward for healthcare reform.

One of the biggest driving forces behind Senators signing on is you. Your phone calls are making the difference. Don't stop now. If your senators haven't sign on yet, pick up the phone and call again today.

If your Senators are Republicans or are Democrats who have already signed on, then keep the momentum growing by adding your name as a co-signer to the Senate Public Option Letter too and get the number to call Majority Leader Harry Reid.

BECOME A CITIZEN CO-SIGNER RIGHT NOW


MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow each covered our campaign last night. When Rachel Maddow asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius directly, if the White House would fight for a public option if the Senate put it in the bill, she answered "Absolutely."

Momentum is on our side. It's up to us to keep up the pressure it will take to get the job done.
