Baucus and Gang of Six---are they real. How many Americans
can have 13% of their Income taken out of paycheck to be paid
to Insurance Companies??? Then pay co-pays etc.

I thought Obama said we would not be paying more and getting
less.

This Buucus Bill is a complete gift to Insurance Companies
in other words a Pre Emptive Bailout of Insurance Companies.

1. The good news is that this is so toxic
it will not get out of committee, most likely.

Jay Rockefeller said he ain't voting for it, and two more are suspected... Add the Republicans, he does not have the votes

3. And as I view Jay Rockefeller, he is more centrist than progressive. If
he says it's a steaming pile, it's a steaming pile.

2. Doesn't the Go6 represent some idiotically small % of the US population? Like 3% or something?
And I'm sure you realize that the Baucus bill is DOA.

4. He hes over $1 million of insurance company and pharma money over the last
several years - he was the worst Dem to have as head of the committee, but there he was. The entire attempt at bipartisanship was and is a waste of time.
