Ed Schultz Pleads For Health Care Reform, Calls Lieberman A 'Coward' (VIDEO)

Ed Schultz made an impassioned plea for health care reform Wednesday during an on-location shoot at a temporary free clinic in Hartford, Connecticut.

Schlutz told of unemployed and under-insured Americans waiting for treatment and diagnoses to save their lives and told Congress to act. He noted that Connecticut passed a statewide health care reform bill that included a public option--only to have it vetoed by the state's Governor.

Schultz also called Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman a "coward" and invited politicians to visit the clinic and see how badly reform is needed.
