Well, I have now received my SECOND response from the Congressmen in question, first from Congressmen Jared Polis (D-CO7)
, and now from Senator Bennet staff. Looks like Senator Bennet (D-CO) has gone public with his support of a Public Option.
Check it out here.
Michael Bennet supports a public option
This morning we released a video outlining Michael Bennet’s support for a public option. I’ve embedded it here. Watch it to hear Michael express his support for a public option in his own words.
During this work period, Michael has been traveling all across Colorado discussing the urgent need to reform our broken health care system. He’s held town halls and discussions in Aurora, Durango, Edwards, Frisco, Grand Junction, Highlands Ranch, Ouray and Telluride. Videos of these discussions can be viewed at http://BennetForColorado.com/…
Any health care reform bill should control costs, allow people to keep their own medical plan and their own doctor, increase competition, and increase coverage — all in a fiscally responsible way. Providing patients with a public insurance option — that increases competition and drives down prices — would help to achieve these goals.

If I get a response from Senator Mark Udall from Colorado that will make it 3 for 3!
Anyone who needed proof that Yelling Louder WORKS need look no further.
So, as our fearless leader Buhdydharma encourages us to do, STAND THE FUCK UP and YELL LOUDER!
Keep yelling, who knows who might here you annd what will happen!
UPDATE! 3 for 3!
Update, Senator Mark Udall has responded as well! Hot Damn, 3 for 3!
I support a public health care option
I support a public health care option as part of comprehensive health insurance reform. The public option, if implemented correctly and in a fiscally sustainable way, will help bring about much-needed competition with private insurance companies.
Hardworking Coloradans deserve affordable and stable health care. Quite simply, the current health care system is broken and we must fix it this year.

Senator Udall, please make your position known
LOUDLY and we will support you for years to come!
Thank you for your time in responding to our needs. If you support us we WILL support you, but actions speak louder than words.
