Has anyone seen Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana)? He has gone missing on the health care debate.
The almost VP-nominee has flown so far under the radar that a Google News search for “Evan Bayh health care” for the past month turns up very little as to the substance of Bayh’s views on Harry Reid’s maneuvering, the issues of a public option and Medicare buy-in which have dominated the news, and whether Bayh supports the bill.
Bayh has been seen and heard on the issue of the budget. But other than voting with Republicans on an abortion amendment, it’s hard to know what Bayh’s stance is on whether he will vote to enact the disastrous Reid bill.
It’s time for Bayh to be heard on the health care bill. If not, we’ll have to organize a search party.
