Fast forward 21 years, Lieberman remains a Democrat but has progressed enough to announce today that he will support a GOP filibuster of Harry Reid's version of Obamacare or any healthcare "reform" plan that contains a public option. (Link to story here.) According to Lieberman, the Reid plan "to put this government-created insurance company on top of everything else is just asking for trouble for the taxpayers, for the premium payers and for the national debt." He added that he would vote against any bill with a public option, "even with an opt-out [clause for states] because it still creates a whole new government entitlement program for which taxpayers will be on the line."
Thanks Joe. Mr. Buckley's faith in you was not misplaced.
