Poll question: If 99% of Americans & 99% of Doctors Supported a Public Option, Would Max Baucus Change His Mind?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. I say the guy would cave at 99%
not because he has a good bone in his body, but only because he has a "highly developed sense of self preservation"

And ten bonus points to the first person who can name the movie from which I borrowed that quote...

He is dancing to industry to assure a comfy retirement. He is an ass

6. Baucus isn't beholden to us or to doctors...
He's shilling for the insurance companies, and he doesn't view the healthcare crisis in any other
terms.

The insurance companies bought themselves a Baucus. So Baucus is simply following the orders of
his owners.

7. Any person that has an insurance flunkie write the bill,
isn't a person that gives a damn about other people.

I really do wish that lawmakers would wear uniforms like Nascar.

8. Whores don't change simply because public opinion differs from the desires of those paying them. . .
