Thanks a bunch, Max

by Pete Talbot

I’ll keep this short and let the others who are better versed in health care reform than I to weigh in — both here and at other sites.

Sen. Baucus voted against a public option plan, similar to Medicare, that was proposed by Sen. Jay Rockefeller.

Baucus said he voted against it because he’s looking for a plan that would get all 60 Democratic votes in the Senate.

I know Max is savvy enough to count votes.  So, which Democrats are against the public option?  Please, tell us Max.  That way we can work our asses of to keep them from getting re-elected — just as I’ve committed myself to searching for a candidate to run against you in the 2014 primary election.

      you and all the parasitic ceo’s of the health insurance industry will be drinking bubbly tonight rusty.

      i will be busy helping to pull the spikes from the rails on the health care reform railroad now. this profit/bribery/scam locomotive needs to derail. mandates for buying insurance from weasels just does not sit well with this bear, especially when i am robbed of an affordable option.

      can’t wait for the train wreck. it’s gonna be a doozy.
      people are pissed off.

      • Yap, a MINORITY of people are pissed off.

    when seniors start getting this stuff in the mail http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/09/are_insurers_exploiting_health_care_debate_misleading_medicare_flier.php

    and the twenty and thirty somethings are told that they are going to be forced to buy health insurance whether they can afford it or not and independents like me and the single payers join forces with the tea partiers to derail this pos it will no longer be the minority rusty. or are you too drunk from the champagne to see that?

    it is going to get very ugly now.

    • “very ugly”? How so?

      • Mike

        Sounds to me like PB is going to join the Tea Party people and help them kick some serious booty.

        • problembear

          i will work to defeat this bill if there is no viable public option and it forces people to buy insurance from weasels. yes.

          • Mike

            Welcome to the ranks of the non-partisan Tea Party people.

          • Jim Lang

            Max Baucus is a liar with absolutely no honor or integrity whatsoever.

            But that was obvious a long time ago. I did not vote for him in the last election, and find it difficult to imagine a scenario in which I would.

            As far as a challenger for 2014…. isn’t the obvious choice – Brian Schweitzer?

    He voted against it because he knew he was going to vote against it on the Senate floor and wanted a plan that all 60 Dems would vote for. since he is a Democratic Senator and planned to vote against it, the proposal obviously did not meet the standard.

    Duh.

    1. the distrust of politicians in general will erode voter participation in either party. this vote tells everyone that no matter who you vote for, ultimately corporate money and lobbyists control every aspect of our government. it really doesn’t matter who you vote for anymore.

    2.no accountability to check the profiteering health insurance industry. you can expect your health insurance premiums to skyrocket now.

    3. a bill written by the health insurance industry will ensure higher profits and more denial caused deaths and bankruptcies and foreclosures for their clients.

    ugly.

  6. Big Swede

    I’m with you on a new Dem challenger, Pete.

    He must be for cap and tax, public option, amnesty for illegals, gay marriage, gun control, fairness doctrine, and every other D wish list.

    Guaranteed winner there.

  7. Mike

    Just open up your wallet, Swede and let the politicians grab whatever they want. You really should not be selfish and should spread the wealth. Sheesh, why do we even have money? from each according… to each according…

    Heaven forbid 2 gays with guns should marry – they might be able to resist.

    • Mike, have you ever considered the option of making sense?

      Swede already opens his wallet, to let the corporations grab whatever they want and can enforce with the purchase of our elected representatives, just like big insurance is doing right now. The funny part, to me, is that you do too.

      • Mike

        The funny part, to me, is that you do too.

        Feel free to explain to me how “I do too”.

        Actually, “making sense” of something is the prerogative and privilege of the reader. The “progressives” sure as hell don’t make sense to me so I am not surprised that I don’t make sense to them.

      Please take your medication before you comment next time.

    Hey Rustry, who going to be the first to garner 100 negative stars?

  9. I wonder why anyone is surprised. Max has been doing parliamentary maneuvers, not for sixty votes, but to prevent any kind of meaningful reform. His goal from day one has been to subsidize private insurance by paying for private policies for poor people and mandating that the rest of us buy policies from them.

    My only question is this: Is this an organized strategy by the dems, with Max appointed as bad cop, or is it Max going rogue?

    I suspect the former.

  10. Chuck

    You need 10 million bucks minimum to get anyone viable to run against the tool and his cronies. Is the money for a challenge to Max out there?

  11. My concern with this health care reform, as an Independent, is that it’s all over the place, there are not enough specifics and it must be put into writing and as if “written in stone” so that not every illegal that comes to the US will get free healthcare and those that work hard all their citizen life in US pay for every “Tom, Dick and Harry”
