He’s for a public option but then not so much for it. Doesn’t like the idea of expanding Medicare:
Dissatisfaction with the Medicare plan erupted Sunday, when Lieberman said it could undermine the larger Medicare program and harm providers. In a meeting with Reid, he threatened to join Republicans in defeating the package.
There was a report on CNN last night that when Lieberman runs for re-election in 2012 he might run as a Republican. All options are open the report said. Just shows he will do anything, anything to stay in office.
You also have to question in general in this day and age the rules of the Senate. If you can get 41 Senators to agree on something they can essentially stop any legislation they don't like. That, to me, is just wrong.
