Sen. Max Baucus on single-party legislation
« on: December 19, 2013, 12:33:06 AM »
Senator Max Baucus (D-MT)--who is the architect of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObanaCare), but who also  described it, in April, as a "huge train wreck"--has now had an epiphany as regarding the manner in which it was implemented:  "It is my belief that for major legislation to be durable, sustainable, it has to be bipartisan. ...I mean, one party can't jam legislation down the other party's throat. It leaves a bitter taste."

Too bad he didn't think of that some 3 3/4 years ago...

Bitter taste? Like a distinct bitter almond taste followed by a sudden flatline?
Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over
