Asked at a town hall meeting whether he'd even read the bill, Senator Baucus, Obamacare's architect, had this to say:
“I don’t think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the health care bill. You know why? It’s statutory language,” Baucus said. “We hire experts.” (Umm, sir, we hired you.)What? It's just statutory language, but it's a "good start"? And several years from now, we'll all have an epiphany and realize it isn't quite as bad as we thought?
“It’s not perfect, nothing’s perfect, but I’m telling you, ma’am, it’s a good start,” Baucus said. “Mark my words, several years from now you’re going to look back and say, ‘eh, maybe it isn’t so bad.’”
“Don’t think so,” she replied.
Alrighty then. I'll check back with you . . . in several years.
