What do you expect… They are from the Northwest, and we know everyone in the Northwest is racist.
A long-awaited health care overhaul unveiled by Montana Sen. Max Baucus is not winning rave reviews from fellow Northwest lawmakers.
Baucus, a Democrat who chairs the powerful Senate Finance Committee, outlined a landmark $856 billion, 10-year measure Wednesday that would extend insurance to about 29 million Americans who now lack it.
But even some Democrats on the Finance panel called the proposal seriously flawed.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said the Baucus draft does not offer enough choices and could force millions of Americans to pay more for medical care.
Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said she wants a greater emphasis on reducing costs and assurances that the bill will reward states that deliver Medicare and other services efficiently.
They just can’t stand that a black man is President.
