Lieberman Holds Health Care Hostage



Produced by Laura Dawn for MoveOn.org & Adam Pierce for Charged

The video pokes fun at the fact that Joe Lieberman is pretty much holding health care reform hostage, gutting it in the process. I think it's silly how he is seemingly able to dictate so much about the bill. His vote was important but I wish this administration had more guts.
The video was a good laugh.

A tip of the hat to the senator from Connecticut for killing the first chance we've ever had for meaningful health care reform....

Honestly, has there ever been as vengeful a little gnat as Joe Lieberman? You'd really have to search the archives of history pretty thoroughly to find someone comparable. There are many reasons why Al Gore was defeated in 2000 by a half-witted frat boy like George W. Bush. One of the main reasons was the abysmal choice of running mate Lieberman.

It was obvious during the debate with Dick Cheney during that campaign that comical Joe was a useless drag on the ticket. When Cheney said that his success in the private sector had nothing to do with the government, Lieberman let the statement stand. Cheney made his fortune at Haliburton because of Government contracts! Government had everything to do with it! Did he purposefully sabotage the Gore campaign? Maybe it's pure paranoia on my part but a case could be made that he did.

Say it ain't so, Revoltin' Joe.
