Well, that’s six months we’ll never get back
By: Attaturk Wednesday September 16, 2009 1:30 am


Who could have anticipated Max Baucus' amazing strategy of negotiating against himself, cleverly produced a plan that still failed to gain a single Republican supporter.

Senate Democrats are going to have to move forward on healthcare without a single Republican supporter after Sen. Olympia Snowe said Tuesday she could not back the Finance Committee’s bill.

Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) failed to win any Republican backer despite weeks of intense negotiations behind closed doors to strike a deal.


So, can we at least go back to the plan you used to have Max, you sly dog? The one that had a public option.

2. Christ, this isn't hard to figure out. Repubs will not support this.
Just do what is necessary to prove to the American public that an effort was made to give the repubs a voice, and show that the repubs refused to support anything at all, then do the fucking job without them.
An improvement in health care will make the repubs look like mean, greedy, selfish assholes. It won't be forgotten for a very very long time.
