  •  Baucus said everything is on the table EXCEPT (5+ / 0-)

    Single payer.  I diaried this last week, but here's the quote and link.

    Montana Senator Max Baucus, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, has said that in writing his new healthcare legislation “everything is on the table” except single payer. One wonders if Senator Baucus has been reading his home state newspapers or just listening to the lobbyists for the private insurance industry.

      the difference...to them all of these things are the same:

      single payer
      universal health care
      national health care
      Medicare for all
      public option
      Congressional benefits for all

      These are ALL different proposals and people assume they are the same. That's where the breakdown in communication happens.

      Call 800-578-4171, choose option 1, and connect to his office.  if no one answers, it probably is because Baucus is too chicken to even listen to the angry messages.

      Alternatively, call each one of his offices in Montana.  Here are the phone numbers:
      Billings
      (406) 657-6790;
      Bozeman  (406) 586-6104;
      Butte  (406) 782-8700;
      Great Falls   (406) 761-1574,  (406) 452-1117 (TDD); Helena   (406) 449-5480;
      Kalispell  (406) 756-1150;
      Missoula  (406) 329-3123;  
      Washington D.C.  (202) 224-2651(Office),
      (Fax)(202) 224-9412
