Lieberman vowes to filibuster the health care bill

If Joe Lieberman joins the Republicans in a filibuster, obama care is dead.  Let us hope that they keep the public option in the bill, since that is Joe’s hot button.  The only other hope the Democrats would have at that point is the reconciliation procedure.  This will not be without challenges, since the reconciliation vote has never been used to pass sweeping legislation.   The reaction of the American public, and an eroding of the filibuster prerogative would be detrimental in the long-term.  Then again, these are the days of living for today, and tomorrow be damned.
