Insurance company prostitutes caving already!
Baucus gets support from the center
Posted: September 17th, 2009 04:49 PM ET

From CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser

WASHINGTON (CNN) Senator Max Baucus stood alone on Wednesday when he introduced his summary for a health care reform bill. But one day later, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee is getting some support from the center.

Four centrist senators Thursday issued a statement praising the Montana senator's efforts to produce a reform bill that may be able to attrack bipartisan support, even though the lawmakers say they have disagreements with aspects of his proposals.

But the senators, Independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Democrats Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Ben Nelson of Nebraska, and Republican Olympia Snowe of Maine, vowed to "put aside partisan views" and work to pass a health care bill.

"We commend Chairman Baucus for his efforts to forge a health care reform proposal that has the potential to gain broad bipartisan support. We are encouraged by his commitment to work with both Democrats and Republicans in the Finance Committee, and believe there is a responsibility for both sides of the aisle to work together to develop a bill that will earn strong support from the full Senate," said the senators in a joint statement Thursday.

Because the bill was declared DOA yesterday and the healthcare vultures are starting to FREAK!

Expect more caving to then turn into begging!

CALL THEIR BLUFF!

1. I'm concerned...
...could this gift-to-the-health-insurance industry--really pass?

I mean seriously. What a joke. We all know it's not reform, and that it's
bought and paid for by Big Insurance.

I want this thing to go away.

Seriously...this won't pass will it.

(And lastly...suck it Lierberman!) He's always around to cheerlead some awful war, theft or corporate crime.

2. Insurance stocks did a rise the other day...How are they doing now?
I think since they wrote the stupid thing, they thought this was a done deal. It's dead in the water from what I see.

4. If it is not dead we should gut it drive a steak through where its' heat should be
and burn it. Then sprinkle it over the GOP's breakfast and make them eat it.
