    Think Progress » Special interests receive a copy of Baucus plan before the White House does.

    Think Progress » Max Baucus receives considerable contributions from health care industry.

    Makes you wonder who Baucus has in mind when he goes to make such contributions to bills, the people he's suppose to represent or the Lobbyists. :eusa_think:

    I'm seriously beginning to wonder about this guy. He is inserting what will surely be a no-go that would impose a penalty (tax) on anyone who does not get health insurance coverage. Seems to me he is deliberately sabotaging the whole thing. That won't fly with moderate Democrats, and it sure as hell won't fly with Republicans.

    Rush Limbaugh was just going over the "revenue enhancements" in the bill.

    Hint: That means "Raising Taxes".

    Three (including Baucus) out of the gang of Six are either against any sort of public option or are on the payroll of the Health Insurance companies. Bipartisanship my ass.
