Colorado Governor, Senators Declare Support for Public Option

The letter (via Huffington Post):

Dear United States Senators,

As Colorado's elected officials and concerned Americans, we urge you not to filibuster the public option.

A public option is a crucial part of real reform. It would inject choice and competition into our health care system, both of which are lacking now. Moreover, it is backed by a majority of Senators, Representatives, and the American people.

Even if you oppose a public option, we urge you not to hold it hostage with the threat of the filibuster. Stand up for the people, not the insurance industry, and give the public option the up-or-down vote it deserves.

Sincerely,

Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. Bill Ritter, Sen. Mark Udall and the Undersigned
Meanwhile, here in Utah...
