Iowa Independent: Harkin: Lieberman will come around
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent
While once again renewing his call that a Congressional health care reform will bill with a public option will be passed and on Pres. Barack Obama's desk by Christmas, U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin suggested that there are several reasons why speculation that Connecticut's independent senator would block a bill with a public option won't come to fruition. "There's just a lot of jockeying going on here for all kinds of positions from a few people that are using their position right now to maybe extract other things, to get other things done," Harkin said Thursday morning on a conference call with reporters. Earlier this week, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) suggested that he would support a Republican filibuster if the final Senate bill contains a public option.
