ABC - Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania has some advice for his fellow Democrats skittish about health care reform in the wake of the Republican upset in that Massachusetts special election.
"My message to those Democrats is don't be afraid," Rendell told ABC News. "Listen, you got elected because you wanted to do something to change the quality of people's lives -- here we have a chance to do something historic and if it means some of us are going to lose because of that so be it. At least you will have lost your office fighting for something and accomplishing something."
He tells his fellow Democrats in Washington, DC, to "get that best bill as strong and as tight as you can then send it back to the Senate and let's see if they (Republicans) are going to filibuster."
"Make them filibuster," he told ABC News in an interview for Good Morning America this morning. "Make them go before America people. Make the American people look at a modern day spectacle of what a filibuster would entail. I think it's time to call their bluff. . .
