Bipartisan Stupidity

Joe Lieberman's Medicare Proposal | Swampland:
"Maybe Joe Lieberman was feeling left out of the current debt ceiling and budget fight. That might explain why the independent Ssenator from Connecticut has chosen this moment to offer a new plan to reform Medicare. Lieberman laid out his proposal in a recent Washington Post op-ed. The headline, “How Medicare Can Be Saved,” is a stretch by any measure. But the plan itself might be the kind of compromise some Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill can endorse."

This is a very bad plan that was put together in hopes of getting precisely this kind of fluffing from the media. Lieberman knows who his constituency is and it sure as hell isn't made up of the average American.
