Killing Health Care Reform: Where are Wu, Schrader and DeFazio?


For those of us who are so sickened watching the slow death of comprehensive health-care reform that we may have to see a doctor ourselves, U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and other progressive House members have provided some welcome relief.

Blumenauer and 56 other House lawmakers signed a letter last week saying they won't support any health-care legislation that doesn't include a strong public option. Talking Points Memo has the story and the letter.

The question now: Where are the rest of Oregon's Democratic congressmen? In the Senate, we know where Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) stands. But in the House, what about U.S. Reps. Kurt Schrader, David Wu and Peter DeFazio (all D-Ore.)?

I don't see their names on the letter.
