The Act Blue has a great ad that they want to run in local markets to go after Democratic Senators who oppose the public option. For some reason that I just can't figure out, the Democratic Senators who oppose real health care reform all have taken a bunch of money from the insurance industry. Here's the ad, and they want you to stop by their site to put your name on it.

The Act Blue is thinking that if they have enough support from folks in the Hoosier state that they'll put one together that discusses Evan Bayh.

Despite his pandering on health care at the JJ Dinner last week, Bayh will probably end up being one of the worst Senate Democrats on the issue if he isn't pressured. The guy has taken lots of campaign contributions from the insurance industry and Eli Lilly, so premium caps, cost controls, and a public option that can negotiate prices with pharmaceutical companies will all be problems for him.

All this is to say that these people need pressure to work in our favor, and Act Blue has a good ad idea. Please help them out.
