Totally Worth It

Max Baucus spent all summer watering down his health care reform bill while negotiating with Republicans to end up with a grand total of zero GOP support... and at least one Democrat who won't vote for his terrible bill. Good job Max!

The only good thing I can say about this strategy is that maybe once we've exhausted all possible avenues of "bipartisanship" with no cooperation forthcoming from Republicans, we can just say "screw 'em" and pass a truly progressive bill through reconciliation.
