Lieberman Will Oppose Baucus Bill

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., said Tuesday he will not support the healthcare bill approved by the Senate Finance Committee earlier today.

Though Lieberman is not a member of the 23-member committee that approved the preliminary legislation crafted by Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., by a vote of 14-9, the Connecticut Democrat is one of a handful of key Senate centrists who are shaping the fate of health reform this year.

"No, not the way it is now," Lieberman said during an appearance on "Imus in the Morning" on the Fox Business Network this morning when asked if he could support the Baucus bill.

Lieberman echoed concerns that the Finance committee bill would hike taxes on insurance companies, which would then be passed along to consumers.

"I'm afraid that in the end the Baucus bill is actually going to raise the price of insurance for most of the people in the country," Lieberman said.
