This morning on the Don Imus show, Joe Lieberman said he opposes the Baucus bill in its current form:
Lieberman also cited concerns about the bill's tax hikes, saying that "to cover some of the people, millions of people, who are not covered with insurance ... puts us in the position where you say, on the one hand, what we're about to do in adopting health care reform will, will reduce the cost of health insurance from what it would otherwise be and the other hand you say, oh incidentally, we're going to raise your taxes or cut your Medicare to the tune of $900 billion or a trillion. And people are beginning to think that maybe they'd do better holding on to what they have now."
