Way to go, Joe [Lieberman]
Joe Lieberman says he opposes the public option — in any form.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Tuesday that he’d back a GOP filibuster of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care reform bill.
Lieberman, who caucuses with Democrats and is positioning himself as a fiscal hawk on the issue, said he opposes any health care bill that includes a government-run insurance program — even if it includes a provision allowing states to opt out of the program, as Reid has said the Senate bill will.
It’s going to be hard to get to 60 votes now, Mr. Reid.
Maybe ol’ Joe would’ve made a decent VP after all.
