The bill produced by Max Baucus (D, MT) and the Finance Committee = no public option. This to appease his healthcare industry overlords.
Now that the Senate is moving forward with Harry Reid's (D, NV) version, and a public option, Max is all behind a public option. I wonder if he realizes that while healthcare lobbyists can give him a shitload of money, they can't all vote for him when he's up for re-election, and most Montana voters favor a public option?
Montana, please give Mr. Baucus a retirement soon. And Nevada voters, please do the same thing for Harry Reid. Maybe you guys can elect John Ensign's (R, NV) mistress's husband. He needs a job... or did Ensign actually find him one?
