Here is video of Sen. Joe Lieberman today saying he is prepared to vote for a Senate Health Care Bill now that the "Public Option" and the "Medicare Expansion" has been removed. Lieberman was flanked by Republican Susan Collins as he made his statement to the media. Lieberman's vote would perhaps give the Democrats the 60 votes they will need to move forward.
The reality is that the Democrats are determined to pass something because they know as long as they get a framework in place, they can then change it later to become the full-blown Socialized Medicine they have intended to bring to America all along. Lieberman appears to be on board, and the drive to pass something before Christmas is moving forward.
