Max Baucus: ” No Senator Can Understand Health Care Bill” You need to watch this video!

WOW… As I’ve stated many times over… I’m all for health care reform. We clearly need to improve access and quality while diminishing costs. An I do NOT pretend to know the answers either.

BUT…

I have issues with a number of the proposals in the bill (no bill will be perfect). And I certainly do not agree with the kick backs, talks of threats and possible brides that have been utilized to muster together the 60 votes to avoid a GOP filibuster…

But this video is truly eye opening. To actually hear these Senators talk about the fact that they have not read the bill and actually do not know what resides within the bill is very scary. To imply that there are Senators (mostly attorneys) who would not understand the bill…even scarier.

Every Senator owes it to their constituents to read each and every word and to be sure they feel it is in their constituents best interest…. not in the best interests of their largest contributor, or a white house that is trying to save face. Isn’t it a fiduciary responsibility to read each bill??

Why is it important… Because WE ARE ALL PATIENTS…. and we deserve accessible, quality health-care and meaningful cost containment.
