Leahy Open To Taking Gavel Away From Lieberman
Joe Lieberman tried to make nice with Democrats to retain his committee assignments, but now that he continues to threaten to filibuster a health care reform bill, his stock with Democrats is on the decline.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, one of 13 Democrats who voted last fall to strip Joe Lieberman’s gavel of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, answered sharply when asked if Lieberman should be kicked out of the Democratic Caucus if he filibusters the health care bill.
“Let’s see what happens. I don’t think anybody should be filibustering — nobody should be filibustering health care. Either vote it up or vote it down.”
