(Oct. 27, 2009) — Senator Joseph Lieberman, (I-CT) scuttled hopes for the Health Care Bill proposed by Obama allies in Congress, when he announced today that he will not support a proposal that gives control over health care to the Federal Government.

Lieberman was quoted by Alexander Bolton of The Hill.com, as saying:

“We’re trying to do too much at once . . . to put this government-created, government-run insurance company on top of everything else is just asking for trouble for the taxpayer, for the premium payer and for the national debt. I don’t think we need it now.”

Lieberman’s announcement is causing a national rejoicing from coast-to-coast, among voters and citizens of all political persuasions.  His opposition to a key element of the Socialist agenda in Congress, to grasp for ever more control over the daily lives of citizens, in violation to the Bill of Rights, is the ultimate political pay-back for the treacherous actions of the Democratic National Party leadership in his recent run for re-election for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

Senator Lieberman, it should be remembered, began taking a politically different path than the DNC, under the Clinton administration, when he broke ranks and criticized a bill, supported by Democrats, which would have relaxed controls on sexually explicit video games, citing the important of protecting children from smut.  His principled position was the bane of the then Vice-President Al Gore who castigated him for his position.

The Senators opposition on this bill will be a key test of Obama’s eroding authority, as his polls plummet and more and more U.S. citizens become aware of his dubious past and non-existent basis for claims to eligibility.  Obama will now have to get Reid to peal away Republican senators, to get it passed in the Senate, which is not going to be easy in this political climate, where non-Republican conservatives such as Dough Hoffman are seen to be likely trouncing establishment candidates on less controversial social issues.

  1. This health care bill is death to our health care.

    One of the most disheartening things about this whole situation is that the republican party has caved to the notion that there has to be universal health care and the gov’t should have the right to force people with the threat of imprisonment to buy health insurance. They have completely caved on this issue, and it is the WHOLE BALL OF WAX.

    If there is universal health care, it doesn’t matter if there is a public option in this particular bill or not, there will ABSOLUTELY, INEVITABLY be a public option sometime in the future. And by caving on the universal aspect and just talking about the public option, they are literally killing our future.

  2. Well, thank goodness, some senators are showing some sense. Even Senator Snowe has said she won’t support a monster healthcare bill if it requires a public option.

    Lieberman is repeating what a number of Republicans have said all along–the Democratic Socialists’ monster remake of our whole system is unnecessary and wrong.

    If something needs to be fixed–like the criminal fraud that is costing Medicare billions every year–let’s fix what is broken. It is a liberal/socialist/communist lie that that our whole heathcare system is broken. And if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

  3. “when he broke ranks and criticized a bill, supported by Democrats, which would have relaxed controls on sexually explicit video games, citing the important of protecting children from smut.”

    I think I like him even better now that I’ve been enlightened; however, sad to say, I can’t dislike Gore any more than I do now.
