    Even more unforgiveable than Baucus "no" vote on firearms background checks was his lengthy dithering on health care legislation while it was in committee, which gave the GOP and insurance lobbyists valuable time to mount a disinformation campaign and mount legislative resistance by negotiating in increasingly obvious bad faith toward illusory "compromise".  Meanwhile, Baucus was heavily corrupted and compromised by his campaign alliances with the health care lobby, and steadfastly used his committee chair position to block consideration of single-payer or the public option...anything which displeased the insurance industry.

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, asshole.
