Several prominent Democrats yesterday said health care legislation should be named after the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, and now a progressive group has launched a petition calling on Congress to do so: at HonorKennedy.com, you can add your name to the list, if you're so inclined. The petition was launched by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee PAC, an online liberal action group aligned with liberal blogs like Daily Kos, Open Left, and Crooks and Liars. While the House already has three out of three parts of a health care bill hammered out, and while the Senate Finance Committee has become the nexus of health care negotiating as it works on parts of health legislation under its own purview, the petition aptly calls for Kennedy's name to be added to the bill that passed the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which Kennedy chaired.
