The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is to begin running this 30 second spot to hold the President accountable for abandoning the public option. The YesWeStillCan.org petition has been signed by over 600 Obama campaign staffers, 40,000 Obama volunteers, and 60,000 Obama donors. You can also contribute to help keep this ad on the air.
The ad is entitled Obama Promised. According to the Huffington Post the PCCC is airing the ad in Wisconsin -- in addition to Washington D.C. -- in hopes of persuading Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) to drop his support for a bill without an additional element of government-run insurance. The goal is not necessarily to kill the Senate's legislation, but to use political leverage to make changes once it goes to conference committee with the House.
