Both of my Senators did this

As it stands, the health insurance market is dominated by a handful of for-profit health insurers that are exempt from the anti-trust laws that ensure robust competition in other markets across the United States.  Without a not-for-profit public insurance alternative that competes with these insurers based on premium rates and quality, insurers will have free rein to increase insurance premiums and drive up the cost of federal subsidies tied to those premiums. This is simply not fiscally sustainable.--Letter to Sen. Harry Reid (D, NV), from Sen. Sherrod Brown (D, OH)
30 Senators signed this letter, including Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden (both D, OR). These are my peeps. And this makes me happy. Which is kinda rare these days.
