First Senator to filibuster House bill: Joe Lieberman

Joe Lieberman on FOX News Sunday (where else would Lieberman be?) became the first Senator to quickly voice his opposition to the House bill which passed last night.

 

This ex-Democrat and now pseudo independent (actually more of a Republican than many Republicans) is willing to stand in the way of health care coverage for over 45 million uninsured Americans.

 

According to thinkprogress Lieberman has actually picked up the far right wing talking points 

 

LIEBERMAN: A public option plan is unnecessary. It has been put forward, I’m convinced, by people who really want the government to take over all of health insurance. They’ve got a right to do that; I think that would be wrong.

 

But worse than that, we have a problem even greater than the health insurance problems, and that is a debt — $12 trillion today, projected to be $21 trillion in 10 years.

 

WALLACE: So at this point, I take it, you’re a “no” vote in the Senate?

 

LIEBERMAN: If the public option plan is in there, as a matter of conscience, I will not allow this bill to come to a final vote because I believe debt can break America and send us into a recession that’s worse than the one we’re fighting our way out of today. I don’t want to do that to our children and grandchildren.

 

I’ll say it again. The people of Connecticut have to dump Lieberman.
