Howard Dean is right as usual. Dr. Nancy points out the New York Times/CBS poll which says that 65% of Americans are in favor of a public option and asks Dean where the disconnect is. Dean points out the obvious-- the money going into the campaign coffers of elected officials that they're paying more attention to than their constituents.

I agree with Howard Dean. If the Democrats pass a bill without a public option, there is going to be a huge backlash against the party. I know Howard must feel like a broken record at this point, but I'm glad he's still out there pushing for the Democrats to do the right thing.

Can you help us out?
