Just wondering - updated

Has Max Baucus been stripped of his chairmanship of the Senate Finance Committee yet?

Why the hell not?

Somebody needs to yank that man's choke collar. Hard and repeatedly.

With this post I am introducing a new tag: "treason equivalency."

HELENA — As Sen. Max Baucus has taken the lead on health-reform legislation in the U.S. Senate, he's also become a leader in something else: Campaign money received from health- and insurance-industry interests.

In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus, D-Mont., and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals.

These donations total about $3.4 million, or $1,500 a day, every day, from January 2003 through 2008.
Not that this would have anything to do with his killing the public option in his committee.

With Democrats like this, who needs Republicans to destroy us?
