Nobody could have anticipated

It's amazing how Max Baucus' strategy of negotiating against himself, cleverly produced a plan that still failed to gain a single Republican supporter.

Senate Democrats are going to have to move forward on healthcare without a single Republican supporter after Sen. Olympia Snowe said Tuesday she could not back the Finance Committee’s bill.

Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) failed to win any Republican backer despite weeks of intense negotiations behind closed doors to strike a deal.

So, can we at least go back to the plan you used to have Max, you sly dog? The one that had a public option.
