According to a recent poll, Connecticut voters favor a a public option to be included within the healthcare reform bill by a 68 to 21 percent margin. But disregarding this sentiment and mandate, Connecticut's Joe Lieberman promises to vote with GOP senators and against the public option.
It's clear that if he opposes what an overwhelming number of his constituents want in this case, there must be some big contribution money coming from the insurance folks. Duh.
My question is, WHAT THE FUCK IS THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS SCUMBAG? ENOUGH ALREADY!
We're way past the whole he votes with us on everything but the war nonsense. He backstabbed Obama after the then-senator from Illinois gave him his support against Ned Lamont in the Connecticut Democratic primary, by endorsing John McCain and speaking for him at the GOP convention last year, and now he pulls this shit?!
