Obama-Voting Independents Want More Change, Not Less

DFA, in the inbox:

We need to act fast and back up our message of the last few days by calling on leaders in Congress to publicly state support for passing bolder healthcare reforms -- including the populist choice of a public option -- using reconciliation which requires only 51 votes in the Senate.

Call the Democrat that represent you (if you have one in your district) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi right now.

Democrats are dangerously close to learning the wrong lessons and repeating the same mistakes they've been making all year. Senators like Joe Lieberman are calling on Congress to do less, drop healthcare, and act like Republican-Lite.

It's time to stop pandering to Joe and listen to the American people instead.

The 2010 Swing Voter -- the Stay-At-Home Base and Obama-Voting Independents -- want more change, not less. That's what our Research 2000 poll of Massachusetts voters taken immediately after polls closed on Tuesday proved.  

This seems to be the one poll (and a sound poll, at that) that Democratic leadership wants to pretend doesn't exist.  But it does, and it's not going away.

Time for Democrats to stand for something more than winning elections (especially when the two are probably one in the same, going into 2010).

  1. Senator Lieberman's lobbyist-written health insurance industry bill is the reason why people have turned against so-called "health care reform." Surely he must know that.
