Now, 11 months into his presidency. Obama still has 135,000 troops in Iraq and has announced a new expansion of the war in Afghanistan.
As far as the health care "Public Option" is concerned, well needless to say that got thrown under the bus real quick. Other than some polite lip service early on, My New President hardly made the "Public Option" one of his priorities.
Democrats tried to placate us, by expanding Medicare. Seniors 55 to 64 would be given the option of "Buying In" (at their own expense, of course) to the already very popular and successful Medicare program. This was obviously not the public option we had been promised, but it was a start I thought. Besides, so the theory went, this would get Senator Joe Lieberman on board, since everybody knows he has been supporting the expansion of Medicare for years. As he states in this video. Just three short months ago...
Well guess what? Surprise, Surprise! Joe Lieberman states on "Face the Nation" Sunday morning that he can no longer support the expansion of Medicare Provision and if it's included in the bill he will join Republicans and filibuster against it.
You see Joe Lieberman has never really supported Health Care Reform. The truth is he's firmly in bed, financially and otherwise, with Big Insurance and Big Pharma. He has continually done their bidding by undermining true health care reform every chance he gets.
Senator Joseph Lieberman should be stripped of his chairmanship and no longer seated with the Democratic Caucus. He's a Traitor and yes indeed, He's a Schmuck!
