This could be one of my all time favorite quotes (of mine). AP (emphases mine):
Liberal groups have held hundreds of events in a bid to show that a robust overhaul is more popular than August’s news reports would suggest.
“The message they’ll be hearing coming back to Washington will be very different than what they heard when August started,” said Jacki Schechner of Health Care for America Now. One idea her group will stress, she said, is that the politically smart vote, even in toss-up districts, will support widespread changes meant to expand health insurance coverage and options.
Nervous Democratic lawmakers need to be told, “you got elected to do something,” she said. “And you might get re-elected if you actually do something.“
