When everyone was talking about the Baucus Bill (the Senate Finance Committee proposal), there was no actual Baucus Bill (something I quietly pointed out). Now there is a real Baucus Bill, and it is a whopping 1502 pages. (h/t The Note)
The actual Bill was released at the very moment it was being merged behind closed doors with the Senate HELP Committee Bill. So there is a Baucus Bill, but it doesn’t matter because it already is being torn apart.
Now that’s transparency for you. Debate and vote on a bill which doesn’t exist, then draft and release it when it doesn’t matter anymore.
There is something fundamentally sick about this process.
