Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) is threatening to help Republicans block a vote on health care reform.
When reporters asked Lieberman if he'd be willing to lose his powerful committee chairmanship as a consequence, he said: "Oh, God no."
Yes, Joe. It's time for accountability.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow reported the progress of this petition:
PETITION TO SENATE DEMOCRATS:
"Any Democratic senators -- including Joe Lieberman -- who support a Republican attempt to block a vote on health care reform should be stripped of their leadership titles. Americans deserve a clean up-or-down vote on health care reform that includes a public option."
Over 145,000 signatures -- can you help us reach 150,000? We'll deliver them the Senate Democratic leaders.
