You had a chance to kill the public option, once and for all last night and you failed to take action.

Look at how they vote, forget about what they say.

Lieberman and the rest of the scoundrels in DC know that this is BS. If they get anything at all passed, the rest will eventually also be law. I'm so sick of the dishonesty.

They keep talking about the public option being there or not — but they know damn well that even without it, the legislation will kill private plans which will eventually “necessitate” a public option. The blatant disregard for the truth is astounding.

I think it will. There are a lot of hookers in the Senate who will do anything for a few bucks and an opportunity to kiss the bottoms of BO’s feet.

I don't think anybody thinks this bill will pass as it is.

I thought you had said you were voting no. I am soooooo confused.

I had hope for Lieberman but he's shown himself to be a worthless leftist, in spite of Hannity kissing his butt.

Lieberman had the chance to kill this POS and he punked out. He needs to go along with his buddy Dodd.

“I Don’t Think Anybody Feels This Bill Will Pass As Is”

What he means is that the final bill will pass when all 1900 pages of the House Bill are added in, making it a 4000+ page monster... Hey! What Congerwhore could vote against free pet care?

This is a blank peice of paper, all 2074 pages. They will make this up as they go along adding what ever they damed well please. They just want to pass the “work in progress” blank sheet so they have something they can claim is thier own. And we will be sure to hang them with it!

Eventually the stock market will react to this insanity, and the fallout will lie solely on the Dems. They totally own this mess now.

Exactly - which is why we want NO interference by government in something as vital to ALL Americans as their healthcare.

"Lieberman and the rest of the scoundrels in DC know that this is BS. If they get anything at all passed, the rest will eventually also be law. I'm so sick of the dishonesty."

I'm afraid that's the plan. I've felt all along that they'd send up the most onerous bill possible, so a few of the worst provisions can then be stripped, allowing "moderates" to support a "compromise" bill. Dems and RINOs can then tell their constitutents how they voted for the bill only after fighting hard to remove the public option, strip abortion funding, address costs, etc.

After all isn't compromise the soul of moderation, and therefore the best solution for everyone involved? To use a medical analogy, many will be relieved at only having a healthy hand amputated when the doctor originally proposed to remove their whole arm.
