Just this morning in Charlotte, Senator Hagan spoke before a group of people at Shelter Health Services and told them that her critics need to stay tuned to what is going on with the healthcare debate in Washington D.C.
"We haven’t taken a 'public option' off the table," she told reporters today. She said it depends on what that means. A member of a key Senate health committee, she said she’s working with colleagues to find a way to expand coverage, ensure quality of care and be fiscally accountable.

It would seem that Senator Hagan is hearing us, and she is at least listening to the point to where she realizes that her core constituancy is not happy with her and some of the remarks she has made lately regarding the public option being included in healthcare reform. She has come to the realization that it is the her core constituancy ARE her critics.
Please continue to urge Senator Hagan to do what we busted our humps to send her to Washington D.C. to do. Simply remind her that she is there to vote for President Obama's agenda to right the ship of State that has been blown off course for many years by the Republicans and the corporatists.
It's going to take some guts and some hard work to overcome all those years of rudderless and leaderless indiscretion. Senator Hagan? That's what we hired you for.
