Get On The Horn: 23 Dems Against the Public Option.

John Adler (N.J.), Jason Altmire (Pa.), John Barrow (Ga.), Dan Boren (Okla.) Rick Boucher (Va.), Allen Boyd (Fla.), Bobby Bright (Ala.), Travis Childers (Miss.), Jim Costa (Calif.), Henry Cuellar (Texas), Parker Griffith (Ala.), Frank Kratovil (Md.), Betsy Markey (Colo.) Eric Massa (N.Y.), Jim Matheson (Utah), Charlie Melancon (La.), Walt Minnick (Idaho), Tom Perriello (Va.), Earl Pomeroy (N.D.), Heath Shuler (N.C.), Bart Stupak (Mich.), John Tanner (Tenn.), Gene Taylor (Miss.)

Big Tent Democrat at TalkLeft does a nice little run down of the 23 Democrats who have announced their opposition to the public option in health care reform. Catch the discussion for insights.

And I don't have to tell you what to do if you live in one of these states: You can find representatives' telephone numbers here.

More analysis at The Hill.

The Democrats should have passed single payer by now. I'm so thoroughly disgusted with them.

Completely agreed! But this isn't about the Dems any more. It's about salvaging the best possible reform we can for ourselves. What is passing for politics right now isn't really getting us there, unfortunately.

I can't wait to read the Max Blumenthal book - I hear he tells us why the Republicans are still able to hold us hostage in the stone age.
