This is just in from Politico:

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.

  1. Lieberman needs to be made a dishonorary Ex-Democrat, and be fired from ALL the committees he’s on. Let the Republicans put him on committees on THEIR side.
    On Ed Schultz’s radio show earlier, Ed said that Reid still could use budget reconciliation to pass the bill. I don’t think the whole bill will qualify as a budget bill. Actually, I think a single payer plan WOULD qualify more easily as a budget bill.

  2. Joe Lieberman represents the insurance companies of Connecticut. We can only hope that the people there realize that.

  3. You have to say the plan is brilliant:

    1. Baucus produces a bill that gets himself re-elected – check
    2. Harry proposes a public option, which might also get himself reelected – check
    3. Lieberman filibusters and kills it dead, so Reid and Baucus can blame someone else. Lieberman strokes himself off on the Capitol Steps – check
    4. Boner and McConnell point fingers at the Democrats for filibusting their own bill
    5. The deaths and bankrupties continue….

  4. Just heard on KPOJ from Thom Hartmann:
    The committee chairs are voted on by the members of the Democratic Caucus, and thirty members have signed a letter insisting on the public option in the bill. The same thirty Senators could vote Lieberman out of his chairmanship if he goes through with his threat.
