Connecticut "independent Democrat" Senator Joe Lieberman wrote an editorial in the November 1st Hartford Courant, "Joe's Stand: Public Option A Risk We Can't Afford." Lieberman's views cannot go unchallenged.

Senator Lieberman says he "share(s) the president's commitment to pass legislation that lowers health care costs, provides greater access to coverage and puts new regulations on insurance companies to protect consumers." He supports Obama's pledge to "not support legislation that adds one dime to the already-staggering (national) debt now or in the future."

But, Lieberman observes, "Our fiscal house is deteriorating dangerously" and, "our health care problem is inexorably linked to our broader economic problems and, in particular, our out-of-control national debt." He writes, "Health care has contributed significantly to this crisis."

Au contraire, Senator Lieberman.
