The Senate Committee that is theoretically opened up to public debate is not exactly open to debate UNLESS those in the debate are all for the Baucus Bill.
The CBO was asked about the monies iinvolved but they said they have the results but it isn't up for public debate. WHY NOT? I supose that Fox News will bar that all out for us sooner than later...maybe. But, here's the Big Deal.
Senator Kyle was trying to make a point but he was rebuffed becaue he was just delaying. Just delaying? From the ABC Blog: Finance Fireworks - Cutting Benefits vs. a Govt. Takeover
Sen. Max Baucus, who chairs the Finance Committee, and is anxious to pass a bill on to the Senate floor as soon as possible so that Democrats can enact health reform this year, cut off Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz, the number two Republican in the Senate, accusing him of delaying and called for a vote on an amendment – one of more than 500 that have been offered to the bill - after 45 minutes of debate.
"I am not delaying. I am making an extremely important point," Kyl shot back.
"I don’t dispute that it is a good point, but it’s also delaying," said Baucus. [...]
Fox News says that this was all a bunch of bickering but I more or less disagree with that. Yid says here: STUPID SENATE TRICKS--The Sen. Max Baucus Edition
[...] Its a good point but he doesn't want to discuss it because it is delaying? [...]
What the hell is up with that? I watched the video and every time Kyle tried to say anything, he was being called out for delaying. I don't get it. Screw Baucus AND his halving the seniors in this country HALF of their health care protections. Did you hear that one?
The SENIORS in this Nation will lose over a period of 10 years HALF of their health care insurance. Screw Baucus.
I like what Yid says about Obamacare...
[...] I am reminded of the end of the movie War Games when the super computer figures out there was no winning strategy for a Nuclear War it says, "Strange Game Joshua, The Only Way to Win is Not to Play." The same could be said about Obamacare. [END]
AMEN! Just shut the entire incident down, throw it all out, take a couple of months off, come back and CONSTTUTIONALLY figure this all out.

Here's another article about the Health Care GAG ORDER over Humana... House Republicans Call for Hearing on Health Insurance Company 'Gag Order'
House Republicans on Thursday called for a hearing to examine the Obama administration's decision to probe a major insurance company, at the behest of Sen. Max Baucus, over a mailer to customers about health care legislation -- a move they call a politically motivated "gag order" on critics of the Democratic plan.
Republican criticism has swelled since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launched a probe into Humana, at the request of Baucus, D-Mont., over a mailer Baucus claimed misled seniors about proposed changes to Medicare.
Humana, one of the largest private carriers serving seniors under the Medicare Advantage program, focused its mailer on the potential for cuts to the service, which were being debated in the Finance Committee on Thursday. [...]
Ain't it GREAT?
