Progressive Populist;1/1/2010, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p2
The author reflects on the motion of U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman against a cloture vote on the health care bill. The author suggests that Democrats should be prepared to pass many reforms as long as Lieberman can frustrate efforts in passing the bill. He notes that the health reform has earned 59 votes from the Senate, however, 60 votes are required to get a final vote under Senate rules. He says that Lieberman cannot be trusted as his decisions are influenced by political retaliation.
