  •  It certainly seems that way (0+ / 0-)

    It can't be a coincidence that 3 Republicans who were part of the "Gang of 6" negotiating on the Finance Committee (previously the "Gang of 7" before Hatch dropped out) suddenly all came out today and said any bill needs 75-80 votes.

    Can Max Baucus finally see that these people are not negotiating in good faith? In fact, they're not negotiating at all.

    (And, hey, I just realized that before Hatch dropped out, the "Gang of 7" had 4 Republicans and 3 Democrats. WTF? It's bad enough now that the "Gang of 6" has an even split, even though the Dems have a majority on the committee and in the Senate, but the Reps had a majority in the negotiating gang? Again, WTF?!?!?)

    I'm a dyslexic agnostic insomniac. I lie awake at night wondering if there really is a dog.
