The progressives, up until now, have been silent on not only the issue of healthcare but all the other issues that are on Obama's plate as well. We are the new "silent majority," those of us who desperately want our government back on our side, not on the side of the corporatists and the big guys, including the insurance and pharmaceutical industries. As Jeff Cohen so eloquently pointed out about a week ago, the netroots, up until now, has been meekly following Obama's lead on healthcare. #$% Obama! We need Medicare for All, now! That should be our rallying cry, and we need to get active, in the streets, now!
