Listen to former Labor Secretary, Robert Reich’s Update and Exhortation[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nO47FwR3RE[/youtube]
THE HOUSE has a pretty good bill with a public option in it, says Mr. Reich, but the Senate’s bill is twisting in the wind, or should I say that arms are being twisted for and against support on the public option.

Watch Robert Reich’s 2 minute 12 second video and see if you’re moved to act. If you are, you’ll have a lot of company, like the A.F.L-C.I.O. This labor union has designated November 5 a nationwide “Day of Action” for its eight million members to push Congress to include a public option, so says the New York Times here.
