ObamaCare Clusterfuck: A rat leaves the sinking ship

Actually, not a sinking ship, but a "train wreck." I mean, ObamaCare was a legislative triumph for Senator Max Baucus, so you'd think he'd wish to stick around to bask in the applause after ObamaCare's triumphant roll-out.* Here, in its entirety, is The Obama's statement on Baucus's resignation:

I want to thank Max Baucus for his nearly 35 years of service to the people of Montana. Max has made small businesses a top priority, often taking “Work Days” to visit local businesses across Montana and spend a day working alongside his constituents to gain perspective and help bolster the local economy. As Finance Committee Chairman and a senior member of both the Agriculture and the Environment and Public Works Committees, Max has been a leader on a broad range of issues that touch the lives of Americans across the country. Michelle and I commend Senator Baucus on his career, and wish him and his family well in the future.

Notice anything missing?

That's right. There's no mention of the "Affordable" "Care" act. Even Obama knows ObamaCare is, well, a "train wreck" so he's already backing away from it. Pass the popcorn, unless your sick and need care, of course.

NOTE * For those who came in late, the Affordable Care Act was crafted by Liz Fowler, a WellPoint VP on secondment to Baucus's office as chief of staff.

Like all members of the political classes in a kleptocracy, Baucus is a criminal. The higher up in the hierarchy, the more criminal. Baucus was pretty high up in the hierarchy. As long as we have our current kleptocratic system, figures like Baucus will spend their careers looting us and the country for their rich paymasters, then ride off into the sunset instead of prison where they belong.
