    So he doesn't want a public option- he just wants a bill barely good enough to pass muster with the threat of making it worse on insurance industry unless they

    keep insurance rates reasonable
    contribute lots of money to Democrats

    But as the polls show-- if they pass a real public option, they'll win.

    •  He seems to fail to understand that (2+ / 0-)

      the votes are actually more important.  Money is always going to follow after the person in charge.

      If they pass Baucus-care and try to pass it off as reform -- that'll considered be a betrayal and the backlash will be ugly.
