Two new polls show that Democrats are about to get a major ass kicking on Tuesday night. They show that Republican Chris Christie will defeat Jon Corzine for reelection in New Jersey and that Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman will be overwhelmingly elected as the next Congressman from New York's 23rd district.

November 3rd is election day. PLEASE VOTE!!!! I highlight candidates in several states like Minnesota, Washington State, NYC, and Pennsylvania. I also highlight the elections in Texas, Virginia and New Jersey. Voter turn out will be low so PLEASE read up on these elections, make your choices and vote. I should note that many more places have elections than I have been able to cover, so even if I am not covering your local elections, please vote.
For other states I continue highlighting the same facts and figures on healthcare reform that I have for weeks. I want to keep these handy for everyone until we have a bill passed. Keep up the pressure!

Several major developments on the Hill. One is the Tri Caucus, lead by Rep Grijalva, is pushing to make the public option viable. As many of you know, the CBO has scored the Blue Dog's public option as costing more in premiums than private ones. Why? Adverse risk-sick people dumped into the plan driving up costs. Major risk adjustment or a robust PO will be needed so that the public option can be you know the AFFORDABLE ONE WE WERE PROMISED.

It's not the time to let up in our push for the public option! Let's keep up the pressure on our elected officials to do the right thing by us on the public option. Call Members of the House today on a robust public option that's tied to Medicare plus 5% rates OPEN TO ALL AMERICANS: (202) 224-3121
Please CALL your Representative today at (202) 224-3121! And if you can, please write letters to the editor starting today about the Eshoo amendment, (http://my.barackobama.com/page/speakout/
HealthCareLetter) and why it MUST be removed from the final conference bill. And in the letter, please ask your Representative and Senator to remove this provision from the bill.

Screams the headline on Huffington Post. It has become evident that the White House is not only not doing enough for a public option but actually not fighting against the proposals being pushed. It might be surprising to some but the writing was on the wall for a long time.
