Senator Lieberman unveils new campaign initiative
Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) launched a new offensive Monday in his campaign for the presidency. The Connecticut lawmaker headed north to Manchester, New Hampshire to unveil the initiative he calls "Leading With Integrity."The title, a not-so-subtle jab at the Bush Administration, is meant to be a catalyst to a campaign that has yet to catch fire. There are only about 100 days remaining before the New Hampshire primary, and Lieberman hopes the new direction will help him capture votes in the state.Lieberman spoke out against the Bush Administration Monday, ignoring his opponents in a crowded field of Democrats. He made the war in Iraq, national security, health care and education his main points of contention with the current commander in chief.But the centerpiece of Lieberman's campaign is his plan that would raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans and give new tax breaks to the middle class. Lieberman said that a married couple earning up to $50,000 a year could expect to save up to $1,000 under his plan, and couples earning $100,000 could expect to save twice as much.
