Staying Bought

When introducing his bill, Max should first thank his sponsors before saying anything like a NASCAR driver -- except for turning left of course.

In the David Broderian-sense, Max Baucus is the most honorable of politicians -- he and his staff are loyal to the "right" people. They've been bought and they're staying bought. The White House has not seen his plan, it is not clear how many senators have seen his plan, but he and his key staffer, a former Health Insurance executive have shown it to the groups that own him:
