Lieberman Will Filibuster Health Care Bill With Public Option

Attention starved Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) says he would support a Republican filibuster of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care reform bill, reports Politico.

Yeah, this is the same Joe Lieberman who was endorsed by Obama back in the 2006 primary. Obama could have endorsed the progressive Ned Lamont, but like Obama keeps telling us, he is not a liberal.

Lieberman added that he’d 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."
