Joe Lieberman Against Public Option
Joe Lieberman Against Public Option – Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is giving the democrats another reason to regret taking him back.Lieberman who is trying to get a little media attention said on Tuesday that he will be voting to filibuster the Democrats’/Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care bill if it contains a public option.Which makes no sense seeing that Connecticutians favor the public option 64-31.Lieberman said:
“We’re trying to do too much at once.To put this government-created insurance company on top of everything else is just asking for trouble for the taxpayers, for the premium payers and for the national debt. I don’t think we need it now.I would vote against a public option plan even with an opt-out because it still creates a whole new government entitlement program for which taxpayers will be on the line.”
Do you think Connecticut citizens will re-elect him? Do you want a government-created insurance company or not?
