Where they stand

Howard Dean has a website called “Stand with Dr. Dean” where he compiles a list of congressional representatives and whether or not they support a public option.

Most North Carolina representatives are in the “don’t know” category, although I think it would be safe to put Virginia Foxx, Patrick McHenry, Walter Jones, and Sue Myrick in the “no” camp.

Heath Shuler, Mike McIntyre, and Bob Etheridge are listed as “don’t know.” Larry Kissell is also a “don’t know” although I would imagine he supports the public option.

G.K. Butterfield, David Price, and Mel Watt are all listed as supporting a public option.

Sen. Kay Hagan is a “don’t know.” I’ll let you go to the website yourself to find out where Sen. Richard Burr stands on the public option.

    Let me guess – Burr….supports competition for NC Blue Cross – right?

    I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the site since Brad Miller is listed as “Ralph” Miller and Howard Coble is “John” Coble.
