More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    "Bachus".

    Is that the same Bachus that Obama turned over healthcare "reform" to?

    The same Bachus who hired a "healthcare" "executive" to write the "reform"?

    This confuses me.

    Every time we give the task of "reform" to a pro-1% / pro-industry connected politician, it seems like we only get Faux Reform (like Faux News).

    For the life of me I just can't figure out how we keep getting Faux Reform, can you?

    It just doesn't make any sense, does it?

    None whatsoever.

    Clearly, what we need, is an administration that will reach out to industry insiders to get us real "reform".

    Only this time we should make it clear that we will NOT STOP.  No matter how many industry insiders we have to bring in, we will keep doing so until they give us Reform We Can Believe In.

    Eventually they may just give it to us out of exhaustion.

    Oh wait!  The cartoon is referring to Rep. Bachus - a Rethuglican!  

    Silly me.  I had him confused with Max Baucus, a Democrat.

    OUR Baucus is the one who "helped" pass healthcare "reform" and is helping Monsanto:

    (Washington, DC) - Montana's senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus called U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack this week warning him that ongoing delays are threatening Montana jobs in the state's critical sugar beet industry. Baucus followed up today with a letter (attached) urging Vilsack to quickly deregulate Roundup Ready ® sugar beets
    Perhaps OUR Baucus should write to Mike Taylor @ the FDA (he was a lobbyist and Vice President at Monsanto before Obama dragged him into "government service").

    Oh wait.  OUR Baucus need do nothing.  The USDA, with the help of Obama's Monsanto Appointee, is on the case:

    It seems that our nation’s regulatory agencies have decided that consumers do not have the right to know when they are consuming GMO products, made clear by not enforcing mandatory labeling.
    .....
    In just two short months, GMOs have gone wild: In January 2011 the USDA fully deregulated GE alfalfa and most recently, in February 2011, resumed the partial deregulation of GE sugar beets and approved GE bio-fuel corn.
    It's confusing sometimes to tell them apart.  

    Good thing I can rely on (D) and (R) labels, otherwise I'd definitely get the two Baucus / Bachus "public servants" confused.
