Last night Ed Schultz offered President Obama a pep talk on health care reform as the battle to get a bill through Congress heats u. Schultz advised the President to stop investing so much in bring Republicans on board because those efforts have yet to pay any dividends.

As for Democrats who are wavering or balking at the price tag, he wants the President to call them out because "they're short on the word 'loyalty'," and to "remind them that the Democratic party platform was to bring health care to every American and it's not supposed to be in the form of a co-op which is just going to be controlled by the insurance industry."

He ended by saying he'll be in the front row at the press conference tonight.
