IndependentÂ of his constituents.
His party is afterall, Connecticut for Lieberman not Lieberman for Connecticut (64% of Connecticut wants the public option).
Stephen Colbert’s take on Mavericky Lieberman is below.
Stephen Colbert takes a moment to recognize the 5 democrats who voted against the public option amendments.
And encourages viewers to send their medical bills to Max Baucus, recipient of over 3 million dollars from the health industry, who is a primary architect of the public-option-less bill in the senate and twice voted against the public option on the grounds that it didn’t have enough votes.
Montana, please vote this pathetic turd out of office.
Colbert translates Pat Roberts request for additional time as “all he wants is some time for health care lobbyists to change the bill”.
“It’s time for lawmakers like Max Baucus to stop hiding their relationships and start printing bumper stickers like these: “Max Baucus: I take more money from the health care lobby than anyone in congress.”
A little honesty from our lawmakers would be nice.
Why is it that the majority of the country wants a public option, but congress has such a tough time getting that done?
Because corporate lobbyists and their paid-for flunkies in congress have too much influence.
Its time to outlaw lobbying and let our lawmakers focus on the good of the people they were elected to serve.
