Time to Kick Him Out
Why does Joe Lieberman
still hold any seniority in the Democratic Caucus?
In a surprise setback for Democratic leaders, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, independent of Connecticut, said on Sunday that he would vote against the health care legislation in its current form.
Seriously. If he insists on making the healthcare debate "all about what Joe wants" he needs to find a new political home. It's time for him to lose his chairmanship.
I wonder how many Dems in CT wish they had voted for Ned Lamont in November '06?
And while we're at it, let's roll back the rules on the Senate filibuster to their 19th century version. If the GOP wants to play games on every issue, at least make them take the field to defend their position.
