1. What I do not understand
is how this one Senator gets to call all the shots. He's from a state with a relatively small population. That's not to say that they should not have a say in this bill but I can't believe the people of Montana are doing so well that they go along with being forced to pay 13% of their salaries to line the coffers of the insurance industry.

Health care reform should not be about forcing people to buy expensive insurance from the companies who have been screwing them over for decades. That's just wrong.

2. people the whores convince them it's because of lack of tort reform
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 12:40 AM by JI7
and other things that are causing these problems.

like that dumbfuck joe the plumber who thinks the reason he can't buy a business is because of high taxes which he doesn't even pay.

and of course immigrants, always blame the immigrants.

3. He's not, this is ONE of three Senate bills
and his may not even make it out of committee.

So if it does not, and whip count is not good for baucus, the other two bills to go to committee are FAR MORE LIBERAL.

4. Well, that's good to know.
It just seems that there has been so much focus on Baucus, like he's the ruler of the world as far as the health care bill goes.

This bill shouldn't make it out of committee. 3 months for diddly squat. screw that.
