Jane Hamsher on R. Maddow Show: About that Progressive Line in the Sand (Video)

Jane Hamsher talks about some of the great progressive work that led to the progressive Democrats' recent firm line in the sand on the question of a public option in the health care reform bill. Progressive activism, our future depends upon it -- and Jane Hamsher is really really good at it.

Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus:

"As we have stated repeatedly for months now, a majority of the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus will oppose any healthcare reform legislation that does not include a robust public option. Our position has not, and will not, change. As Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus, I look forward to working with my colleagues to develop comprehensive legislation that allows all Americans to choose the healthcare plan that’s right for them and their families. But I will not support any bill that does not include a public option."
