CT Senator Joe Lieberman Says “If the Public Option is in There, I will Not Allow this Bill to come to a Final Vote”
A Statesman emerges with convictions and principles … Former Democrat VP candidate says he will not vote for health care reform with a public option. Lieberman will vote to filibuster that plan if it contains a public option.
Independent Connecticut US Senator Joe Lieberman is for health care reform. However, he is not for Obama-Pelosi Care. Isn’t this the same guy who Democrats had run as their VP in 2000? My how the Democrat party has changed to the Far LEFT. This morning on Fox News Sunday, Lieberman told Chris Wallace that he was for reforming health care to stop the unsustainable increase in health care costs and to cover millions of uninsured’s; however, the Independent from the Nutmeg State is against the public option.
“The public option plan is unnecessary. It has been put forward I am convinced by people who really want the government to take over all of health insurance.”
Worse than that, we have a problem that is even greater than the health care problem and that is the debt.
“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…
Senator Lieberman then went on to say that he believed that the debt escalating from $12 trillion to $21 trillion in 10 years because he believes that the debt can break America and send us into an even greater recession than we are fighting out of today. Lieberman stated that he did not want to do that to our children and grandchildren. Too bad the liberal Democrats in the House did not care about the future generations, only their own power.
