Watch Robert Reich, Former Secretary of Labor, On Why We Need a Public Option (And what it is!)

In a new video, Robert Reich speaks about the necessity of a public option in health care reform.  Secretary Reich wrote us today summarizing his thoughts:

“A true public option is necessary to pressure private insurers to compete on quality and price, and to pressure drug companies and other medical providers to offer better deals. It’s the only way to expand coverage while continuing to reduce overall costs. Every American should have the freedom to choose a public insurance plan if they wish. ”

Watch Robert Reich now, and spread the word.
