Lieberman gets ex-party to shift on health plan

New York Times, December 15, 2009

The day after Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-CT) threatened on national television to join the Republicans in blocking the healthcare bill, Democratic senators emerged from a 90-minute closed-door session and suggested that they were on the verge of bowing to Lieberman's main demands: that they scrap a plan to let people buy into Medicare beginning at age 55, and to put an end to a fallback version of a new government-run health insurance plan. Lieberman said he believed that the Medicare expansion was off the table, though he did not get any guarantee, reports the New York Times.
