How much longer will our Dem leaders tolerate this bullshit from Lieberman? You can't spell Lieberman with using the word "lie".
Here is a great summary by Bob Cesca:
Joe Lieberman is insisting that the public option adds to the deficit, which, of course, is a total lie.
This has been Lieberman's standard argument for the past few weeks, but he has not, to my knowledge, explained how it works. Every analysis of the public option I've seen has concluded that it will reduce federal, and consumer, spending. Indeed, the stronger the public option is, the more it reduces the deficit. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that a public option paying Medicare's rates would save the government more than $100 billion in the first 10 years, and more after that.
I want to hear how Lieberman has knowledge that eludes the CBO.
