Many liberals are furious over the possibility of losing the public option, and they’re pissed at President Obama for hinting that he could support a bill without it. One problem, however, has been the simple fact that the angry right has been out-organizing the left when it comes to health care.
That may be changing, as the Huffington Post reports that liberals are starting to out-number the health care opponents and screamers at the town hall events.
This can help, but they need much more. If they want to sway wavering members of Congress, then they have to do a better job of mobilizing support for health care reform and the public option.
I support the public option, but I’m not willing to kill health care reform if we have to settle for co-ops instead.
