If they add public option, pass Obama health reform bill

This petition had 103 supporters

The February 25th Health Care Reform meeting revealed clearly the enormous divide in Democratic and Republican thinking about reform of our inadequate and costly system. There apppears to be no significant likelihood of achieving real bipartisanship.  The plan outlined by President Obama is full of compromises, but, it is a beginning and must not be allowed to fail, only if they add a public option. It includes many major provisions originated by Republicans either in 2009 or earlier years, and represents bipartisan views even though the current Republican position is to reject it in its entirety.  And, stop Stupac Amendment, and any variations there of.  As well, no trigger, because triggers don't get pulled, no co-ops, or hammer; also must include anti-trust provisions.  Also, please, advocate for singlepayer healthcare, with Community First Choice Option and CLASS Act (Community Choice Act for the handicapped, elderly, autistic, disabled, etc.); H.R. 3200 & S. 703, with Senate Amendment 2837.  I urge you to press for passage of this bill within the next few weeks, through the reconciliation process if necessary.
