Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) promised health care advocates who visited his district office he "absolutely would" fight for putting a public option into the final compromise legislation
Ellison also joined the group in a health care carol set to the tune of Jingle Bells.
"The time has come/For change you know/It's happening this week.
We can't wait/We can't wait/We can't wait at all
Health care now/For everyone/Listen to our call"
The Star Tribune has the video, which shows Ellison snapping his fingers as he joins in. Reader LR alerted us to the story.
