AM 760/Denver's Sirota To Deliver 'Public Option' Petition To Senator
March 23, 2010 at 6:09 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KKZN-A (AM 760)/DENVER morning host DAVID SIROTA will personally deliver a petition with 34,000 signatures to the DENVER office of Sen. MICHAEL BENNET (D-CO) TOMORROW (3/24) to ask him to stick to his promise and use the reconciliation process to add a public option to the health care bill.
Earlier this year, BENNET demanded that Senate leaders use reconciliation to create a government-run insurer to compete with private insurance. With the Senate about to vote on a separate reconciliation bill after the president signed the main bill, supporters of a public option are looking to hold BENNET to his word.
