Sen. Joe Lieberman caucuses with the Democrats but doesn’t seem anxious to find a solution for uninsured Americans. “And I’m afraid we’ve got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy is out of recession. There’s no reason we have to do it all now,” Lieberman told CNN’s John King Sunday.
“I think it’s a real mistake to try to jam through the total health insurance reform,” Lieberman said. “It’s just not good for the system. Frankly, it won’t be good for the Obama presidency.”
