fresh voices from the front lines of change







The daily Progressive Breakfast serves up what progressive movement members need to know to start their day.

Democrats May Go It Alone

The futile quest for bipartisanship may be dead. NYT: "...Democrats now say they see little chance of the minority’s cooperation in approving any overhaul, and are increasingly focused on drawing support for a final plan from within their own ranks ... 'The Republican leadership,' [Rahm] Emanuel said, 'has made a strategic decision that defeating President Obama’s health care proposal is more important for their political goals than solving the health insurance problems that Americans face every day.'"

House digging in on public option. HuffPost: "House Democrats dialed in Tuesday for their weekly caucus meeting and uniformly expressed support for a public health insurance option as part of comprehensive reform. Not a single member spoke up on behalf of co-ops, according to both people on the call and people briefed on it ... 'I was surprised there were so many people who were still so firm on [the public option],' said a participant. 'A lot of people were saying this is what they're hearing from their constituents.'"
