Congressman Cao is Sole Republican Vote in Support of Health Reform

After months of grassroots pressure, and months of indecision and wavering, Congressman Anh "Joseph'' Cao became the only Republican in the House of Representatives to vote in favor of the Democratic health care reform bill.

Grassroots activists in New Orleans, who repeatedly confronted Cao on this issue, deserve at least some of the credit for this vote. As the bill moves to the Senate, it's time for activists to keep the pressure on Senator Mary Landrieu, who has also been noncommittal on the issue.
