I just received this email from the Connecticut Working Families:
Tell Joe: No Filibuster
Healthcare reform is too important to let Senator Lieberman stand in the way. Tell Joe: Don't filibuster.
Tell Senator Lieberman: No filibuster
Yesterday, we were closer than ever to having real healthcare reform when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced the Senate version of the healthcare overhaul would include a public option - an affordable public healthcare plan that would be there for us, even when insurance companies let us down.
Then Senator Joe Lieberman threw a wrench in the works. He announced he'd join a Republican filibuster to halt healthcare reform.1
This is a national news story. But the only voters that Lieberman is really accountable to are in Connecticut. So let's make ourselves heard.
Tell Joe: Don't filibuster. Not this time.
Please help spread the word. Forward this email to a friend or share on Facebook.
If there's one thing that millions of American families are counting on from the new administration, it's healthcare reform. Especially as healthcare costs and insurance industry profits continue to grow.
We're not asking a lot. We're not even demanding he vote for a public option - just that he not single handedly stand in the way of allowing healthcare reform to get a fair up or down vote.
And it wasn't that long ago that Senator Lieberman was talking like a champion of healthcare reform.
Back in July 2006 he said: "What I'm saying to the people of Connecticut, I can do more for you and your families to get something done to make health care affordable, to get universal health insurance."2
And in October 2006, he started describing a plan that sounded a lot like the public option. "MediChoice to allow anybody in our country to buy into a national insurance pool like the health insurance pool that we federal employees and Members of Congress have."3
Healthcare reform was a good idea when Leiberman supported in back in 2006. It's an even better idea now. Today, there's a public option on the table. We're this close. Let's shout so loud we can't be ignored and tell Senator Lieberman not to filibuster.

See that money quote, "MediChoice to allow anybody in our country to buy into a national insurance pool like the health insurance pool that we federal employees and Members of Congress have."
If you live in Connecticut, have lived in Connecticut, will live in Connecticut, or know someone who lives in Connecticut, you need to get on the phone right now. We need to send the message to Senator Lieberman that he works for us and not for insurance companies!
