It is the establishment bargaining position. Let's turn it into the starting point. And no one gets held to the starting point. They need to move our direction.

2. I think we are saying essentially the same thing.
I just want us to let them know that we don't consider this Baucus bill to be the end point.

Baucus's BS bill is not the only game in town.

ON EDIT -- I do indeed get what you are saying.

4. The only starting point that crap bill should be is to tear it up & Medicare for all
Its obvious after this that the piecemeal approach is too easily corrupted by the special interests in DC.

Use this as a template for what NOT to do and bypass those special interests by proposing a single payer system.
