Lieberman: Strip out major reform and I'll vote for health bill.

Lieberman will vote for healthcare as long as the bill is stripped of anything which might constitute real change.

"You have to take out the Medicare buy-in. You have to forget about the public option. You probably have to take out the class act which was a whole new entitlement program that will in future years put us further into the deficit," Lieberman told CBS' Bob Schieffer Sunday.

"I want to tell you, we could pass a health care reform bill this week with more than 60 votes and it would be bipartisan if we just took a few things out of the bill as it is today," said Lieberman.

If they just stop it having any value, then Joe could vote for it. I've said it before but Obama needs to kick this guy into touch. Remove his chairmanships and force him to caucus with the Republicans who he campaigned for during the last election.

He's just in it for the pork. Ironic isn't it?

I don't think Lieberman's religion has anything to do with this. He's simply an awful little right winger at heart, which is why the fact he caucuses with the Democrats pains me so much.
