Americans support a public option

A New York Times/CBS News poll shows overwhelming support for a public option - 72 percent of all those polled were in favor, with 20 percent opposed and 7 percent clueless.
Half of Republicans were in favor (39 percent opposed).
87 percent of Dems were in favor! (9 percent opposed).
73 percent of Independents were in favor (22 percent opposed).

And yet Senate Dems are not on board.

What is wrong with this picture?

Contact your senators! Here's an Howard Dean petition - there are others as well.
