Joe Leiberman On Obamacare: "There’s No Reason’ To Deal With The Uninsured Until After The Recession" (Video)

Leiberman Gets It Right–
Senator Joe Leiberman wants to put the brakes on Obamacare.
The Connecticut independent believes that the government should wait on dealing with the health care issues until after the recession is over.
With Obama as president, that could take a while.

This came after it was announced this weekend that the White House was off on their deficit projections by $2 trillion:

Think Progress was not pleased to hear this:

LIEBERMAN: Morally, everyone of us would like to cover every American with health insurance but that’s where you spend most of the trillion dollars plus, or a little less that is estimated, the estimate said this health care plan will cost. And I’m afraid we’ve got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy is out of recession. There’s no reason we have to do it all now
