Senator Baucus Using Blackmail on Healthcare

This is an outrage!! Baucus should be hauled out and flogged for this. Once again if anyone tries to stand in the way of what this administration wants you will be punished. Let's light up Baucus's office and let him know how we feel. Respectfully of course (yeah right) 202-224-2651 is the number for his Washington office. This man is a disgrace. Yeah this was going to be "Change" from politics as usual. It's change alright we are now being run by a bunch of thugs. I can't believe we are stuck with this jacka-- till 2012. Voice your anger. This article appeared in more than this one place.

Didn't Nixon Keep an 'Enemies List?'

Unbelievable.

Can you imagine the reaction if a Republican had tried this?

Top aides to Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) called a last-minute, pre-emptive strike on Wednesday with a group of prominent Democratic lobbyists, warning them to advise their clients not to attend a meeting with Senate Republicans set for Thursday.

Russell Sullivan, the top staffer on Finance, and Jon Selib, Baucus’ chief of staff, met with a bloc of more than 20 contract lobbyists, including several former Baucus aides. http://www.redstate.com/brianfaughnan/2009/06/11/baucus-d-mt-...

Here is another good article on Senator Baucus. It just keeps getting worse with him.

Left Busy e-Shrieking Over Baucus’s $3.9 Million in Campaign Coffers from Health Care Industry

http://healthcarehorserace.com/activism/06152009/left-busy-e-...

According to the Baltimore Chronicle, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) received hefty campaign contributions from the health care industry, thereby rendering him incapable of pushing universal health care without submitting to corporate interests:

* The Insurance Industry: $1,170,313
* Health Professionals: $1,016,276
* Pharmaceuticals/Health Products Industry: $734,605
* Hospitals/Nursing Homes: $541,891
* Health Services/HMOs: $439,700

Total over political career: $3,902,785
Total received in campaign in 2008: $1,826,652

The piece, brought to us originally by the Baltimore Chronicle, was published May 31, 2009. Well, the Daily Kos caught on a few weeks later and posted today in an article entitled Breach of Promise: Sen. Baucus Just Ditched America at the Altar.

Max Baucus broke his promise. Max Baucus left America at the altar while he ran off with healthcare insurance companies, Big Pharma and other K Street whores. This makes me angry. This makes me fierce. I want that man out of the Senate. I want that man in jail. I want every uninsured man, woman and child in America to join me in an impeachment campaign against Baucus. And I want him to feel the sting of a class-action lawsuit generated by every single person in America who has ever suffered illness and harm because they were turned down for healthcare by Baucus’ friends. Given the $1,826,652 Baucus has already received from the so-called healthcare industry, the settlement amount would probably only come out to one dollar per person, and that’s not much compensation for the world of pain Americans have suffered and will suffer because of his “Breach of Promise” — but it would make ME feel a whole lot better.

I can imagine that the Daily Kos user jpstillwater would be shouting this in typical Howard Dean fashion… “wahhhh!” And as kids these days say, that just made me “LOL.”

    Well if anybody has been paying attetion this has been going on that I am aware of, since Bush came out to save the financial inst. They were strong armed into takeing money that they didn't want, and O is in there doing the samething to everybody else. This is the name of the new game. Our government is getting everything they want by strongholding everybody they deal with and exspecially the ones they want control over their business. Where should I start.

    This is our future, our government is nothing more than the MOFIA!

    I agree. I can't stand Bacuas and the things he's done. I couldn't believe it when he got reelected in November. He is nothing more than Oblabla's yes man.

    They think there is no accountability for their actions, that we are stupid, weak and complacent ...

    Yep sounds good to me. Heck if they haven't voted yet to change the law here in Montana you can still hang someone for the death penalty. They are talking about eliminating the death penalty here but I hope that doesn't happen.
