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
now: Where are the rest of Oregon's Democratic congressmen? In the Senate, we know where Sen. Ron Wyden
. But in the House, what about U.S. Reps. Kurt Schrader, David Wu
and Peter DeFazio
I don't see their names on the letter.
