Lieberman Says No To Health Care Bill
Sen. Joe Lieberman says the Medicare buy-in and public option mean he's voting against the health care bill.
A Senate Democratic aide, flummoxed by Mr. Lieberman’s stance, said, “It was a total flip-flop and leaves us in a predicament as to what to do.”
What would it take for Lieberman to change his mind?
“You’ve got to take out the Medicare buy-in,” he said. “You’ve got to forget about the public option. You probably have to take out the Class Act [long term care provisions], which was a whole new entitlement program that will, in future years, put us further into deficit.”
