North Dakota Dems Ask Conrad to Support a Public Option

Personal Health

It's not just Nebraska. Seems that North Dakota Dems are much more in line with their Sen. Dorgan than Conrad, and they've made that clear to him.

The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party met in Fargo, N.D., on September 19, 2009, and passed a unanimous resolution directing the party's Executive Director to send a letter to North Dakota's Congressional Delegation, letting them know where the North Dakota Dem-NPL Party stands.

The Dem-NPL's Executive Director wrote a letter to remind the congressional delegation that the party voted last year to urge congress to enact universal, single-payer legislation.  In the event the delegation member could not find it within himself to support universal, single-payer, they were asked to support the public option.

Of course, Conrad could argue back that he is supporting a public option, just the one he calls co-ops. Somehow I don't think the North Dakota Dems, who have actually demanded single-payer, would settle for that.
