Ed Schultz let go with a righteous rant against the state of health care while attending a one-day free clinic today in Hartford, Conn for the uninsured.

I don't know what they are doing in Washington.

I know that there aren't any house members here and there aren't any senators here. And I can tell you one piece of information here in Connecticut, the house and the senate passed Universal care for everyone and the governor vetoed it. The public option in this state polls overwhelmingly well, but in Washington, Joe Lieberman, not only is he not here tonite, but he's against the public option.

(7:17) I could look Joe Lieberman in the eye, and Senator, I don't care if it costs me my job, I don't care, you are a coward. You are a coward, Joe Lieberman because you don't stand up for the people of this state and represent them and give them what they want.

Ed continued later on Olbermann's show with more details of the day in Hartford.
