Concessions Baucus Made To Repugs: The List
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 10:00 PM by masuki bance

**Deleted Headline**

By GottaLaff




Because I'd like to retain what's left of my appetite before dinner, I'll give you the list, but you'll have to go here for the details. Are you ready? Pepto nearby? Check. Big white porcelain microphone available? Check. Cold rag? Check.

Hang on to your smelling salts, here we go:

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR NO PUBLIC OPTION.
BAUCUS BILL NO PUBLIC OPTION

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR POLICIES ACROSS STATE LINES.
BAUCUS BILL POLICIES ACROSS STATE LINES

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR HIGH RISK POOLS.
BAUCUS BILL HIGH RISK POOLS

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR VERIFICATION OF CITIZENSHIP.
BAUCUS BILL VERIFICATION OF CITIZENSHIP.

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR NO PUBLIC FUNDS FOR ABORTION.
BAUCUS BILL NO PUBLIC FUNDS FOR ABORTION.

* REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR HIGH DEDUCTIBLE POLICIES.
BAUCUS BILL HIGH DEDUCTIBLE POLICIES.


What we've learned:

* Main Entry: bipartisanship
* Pronunciation: \bī-ˈpr-tə-zən, -sən, -ˌzan, chiefly British ˌbī-ˌpr-tə-ˈzan\\-zən-ˌship, -sən-\
* Function: noun
* Date: 1895: of, relating to, or involving members of two parties ; specifically : marked by Rushpublics demanding and Dems caving.

...Republicans, in other words, have moved the goal posts on reform. Despite Baucus many concessions, the GOP is still arguing that the proposal simply leads to more government, more spending and more taxes and spends too much.

The chairmans health care proposal (known as the chairmans mark) that was released by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) in advance of next weeks Finance Committee Markup is just more of the same big government policies that have been proposed by this Congress and this administration for months, Sen. Jim Demint (R-SC) wrote on his website.

They're out as long as Obama is in the WH - and he knows it.

12. Every change I made was noted. What's your problem?
I deleted the headline because I noted the comments and realized that it was incorrect and in its place I wrote *Headline Deleted*. The OP title was changed for the same reason and then I responded to one of the community who brought up the concern with an "Updated" reply.

How is that trying to fool you? Is it really that easy?
