More than 80 percent of Democrats say they believe Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn) should be stripped of his powerful chairmanship in the Senate if he ends up supporting a Republican filibuster of health care reform, according to a new poll. [...]
Good. Stay home in 2010. Morons. What about the United States Constitution you fur balls?
Looks like Joe Lieberman decided to try for the old double-cross and say he now opposes the Medicare expansion compromise he’d hinted he would support. Lieberman wants no public option, no trigger that might create a public option, and no expansion of existing programs as a substitute for a public option. And he doesn’t care about expressing that view in misleading ways, timed to cause embarrassment to the Democratic leadership. And, frankly, unlike some other troublesome Democratic Senators one can hardly be all that surprised that he’s making problems for the Obama administration’s #1 domestic priority. After all, Lieberman took the view that John McCain would be the better President. [...]
Shut up Matthew. What would you know about the United States Constitution you idiot? The USC doesn't mention any federal health care. Period. End of discussion. Dweeb.
A deal? A DEAL? Yep. Let's legislate around that pesky USC just because it doesn't go far enough. Right? Right. Idiot Ezra.
The Huffington Post and Roll Call are both reporting that Joe Lieberman notified Harry Reid that he will filibuster health-care reform if the final bill includes an expansion of Medicare. Previously, Lieberman had been cool to the idea, saying he wanted to make sure it wouldn't increase the deficit or harm Medicare's solvency (and previously to that, he supported it as part of the Gore/Lieberman health-care plan). That comforted some observers, as the CBO is expected to say it will do neither. Someone must have given Lieberman a heads-up on that, as he's decided to make his move in advance of the CBO score, the better to ensure the facts of the policy couldn't impede his opposition to it. [...]
Screw the Huff and Puffers. Let's do a CONSTITUTIONAL federal health care Bill. OK? Right?
It's starting to seem like it may just be better for Dems to try to make a deal with Olympia Snowe, kick Joe Lieberman out of the party and be done with it. The leadership in the senate thought that Lieberman was on board with the latest compromise. [...]
There's that "compromise" deal going again. Where is "compromise" is the USC? Anywhere? Anyone? Hello? Kick Lieberman out of what Party? The Independent Party?
Poor Lieberman. Poor Leftinistra. Poor Defeaticramps. Poor libtards.
Washington Post socialized medicine expert claims that Senator Joe Lieberman will cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people by opposing the Democrat’s nationalized health care bill.
In a post on The Washington Post’s Web site dated Dec. 14, Klein viciously attacked Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Ct., after reports surfaced that Lieberman would filibuster the current health care bill if it meant expanding Medicare (h/t Amanda Carpenter at The Washington Times) (emphasis added).
“And if there’s a policy rationale here, it’s not apparent to me, or to others who’ve interviewed him,” Klein wrote. “At this point, Lieberman seems primarily motivated by torturing liberals. That is to say, he seems willing to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in order to settle an old electoral score.”
Shut up moron. Let's talk about the USC, OK? Where is federal health care in that document?
This should surprise no one, but Democrats are howling about a double-cross after Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) told CBS yesterday that he would not vote for cloture on Harry Reids’ compromise bill. Lieberman’s colleagues thought they had an agreement with him to allow Reid’s bill to proceed to a vote. His apparent reversal — which is no reversal at all from his repeated public pronouncements — leaves them short of a cloture vote on ObamaCare: [...]
It really doesn't matter what anybody said at any particular time. Just as everyone goes against the USC all is well. Right? Right.
Sen. Joe Lieberman won’t vote for Harry Reid’s health care monstrosity. Democrat Sen. Ben Nelson is also balking.
Let’s hope they mean it: [...]
[...] Kill the bill.
Declare Code Red.
No more tinkering, compromises, or pussy-footing. Stop apologizing for being “obstructionist.”
Naked Emperor News/Breitbart TV spotlight Obama’s past statements on using Medicare expansion as the Trojan Horse for universal health care:
I would very much like to see a CONSTITUTIONAL federal health care Bill. You?
