Baucus 8 one year later
Of course, the bright spot -- I'll just go ahead and call it heartwarming -- was the way that our tribunes of the people in the progressive blogosphere front-paged this courageous act, where eight citizen activists were arrested for civil disobedience in support of Medicare for All as Max Baucus held a hearing from which single payer voices were excluded -- when single payer was the only policy option on offer that could be shown to save lives and money (though not, alas, to bail out the insurance companies).
NOTE Via Health Care Now! (Not be confused with the Ds uber-fake astroturf campaign, Health Care for America, complete with lobbyists posing as real bloggers on career "progressive" meme laundries. Talk about polluting a namespace...)
