Bleeding Heartland: Time for Braley's Populist Caucus to speak up on health care
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Congress is getting to work on the details of health care reform,
and a major battleground will be whether to include a strong public health
insurance option for all Americans. Republicans like Senator Chuck
Grassley are revving up their scare tactics about "government-run" health
care. Coalitions of Democrats who back a public option are also taking
shape in the House and the Senate. The new Populist Caucus led by Congressman
Bruce Braley (IA-01) has yet to weigh in on the specifics of health care reform.
That needs to change soon if Braley is serious about turning this caucus into a voice
for the middle class in the House.
