The Republican Baucus Plan

The Wonk Room details the long list of Republican items in the Baucus Plan. There are many. It's really a Republican plan with a few concessions to centrist Democrats.

And yet somehow there's no Republican support.

What does this tell us? Baucus and the Finance Democrats will probably allow more Republican amendments to be included during markup and an already shitty bill will become way more shitty. But because increased subsidies will also be added, the Republicans won't vote for it anyway.

And around and around we go.
