Baucus Plan is Dead, and Why You Should Be Happy About It.
'Why the Baucus Plan is Dead, Why Co-Ops Wont Work, and Why You Should Be Happy About It.'

"As anyone could have predicted weeks ago, the "alternative bill" Max Baucus has presented is a complete and utter joke. But don't be mad, progressives. Be happy. Before this piece of crap appeared, there was all sorts of speculation about what an alternative might be. Talk of co-ops actually sounded like a feasible idea to a lot of people. Now, however, they can see them and read about them, and now, we can demonstrate that the alternative Blue Dog plan is, well, a dog. If we play this right, we can make a strong reform plan with a robust public option a reality. "

1. I hope it is dead
It's an awful bill. Forge ahead with reconciliation and leave the lunatics and bought and paid for (Baucus being one) behind.

3. Okay, the bill is dead. What is there that can replace it? Is there
a bill from Kennedy's office that is complete enough for a vote? Any others?
