Sen. Lieberman, the contemptible Connecticut senator (a Democrat in name only) who sided with the Bush administration on all matters related to the ill-advised wars that are making Osama Bin Laden laugh at American stupidity and futility, is now on the record having said that he will side with a GOP filibuster of any bill that contains a public option.
Sen. Lieberman justifies his opposition to the public option with the fact that it will cost taxpayers too much. (More than the alternative, which is more than 45,000 preventable deaths each year, senator?)
Obviously Sen. Lieberman is either too corrupt or too dumb to see the fallacy of his logic: He opposes the public option on the ground that it is too expensive, but he had no qualms supporting what economists Linda J. Bilmes and Joseph E. Stiglitz called "The Three Trillion Dollar War" (granted, he was not the only Democrat to do so, but he was arguably the most vocal and visible Democratic presence on the president's side.)
At this point, I think it would only be fair for Sen. Lieberman to forego his own health insurance for the rest of his (hopefully brief) political life, so he can experience first hand what it means to be an "all out-of-pocket" American.
Please read Robert Creamer of the Huffington Post on why the public option should get a straight up-or-down vote).
Also, please write Sen. Lieberman to censor his position and try to sway him back to the side of fairness.
