Sirota to Bennet: Don't make promises that you're not willing to keep

Oh accountability. We love it so.

Dear Appointed Senator Bennet,

It's time to pay the piper. In fact, it's time to pay the 35,000 pipers that David Sirota had sign a petition to you on health care reform.

Sorry for the traffic noise in this one . . . Here's the transcript of the beginning:

"Senator Bennet made his commitment to offering the public option in this legislative process, knowing that this process could be a difficult process. He shouldn't have made the promise unless he was willing to fulfill the promise. His arguments about process are basically an argument that it's difficult to do this. But don't make promises that you're not willing to keep, no matter how difficult they are. And I don't think it's asking too much simply for him to follow through."
