Yes he sounds a bit sloshed. I watched part of this and the scrawl said ~1:30 Pacific Time (4:30 eastern) , so it must of been 5 o'clock somewhere ( not in Montana) . Unfortunately Mr. Baccus is one of the grown -ups in the Democratic party
(even so he has been a dissapointment to me lately) . He rammed a Health Care bill thru his Finance Committee last summer (and eliminated my present health insurance plan in the process) by cutting off a lot of the discussion to meet the imaginary time table set for him by his Party masters. Then he manuvers his girlfriend into a high level govt appointment (either Fed District Prosecutor or Judge) . Then lately he declares that anything beyond the present 99 weeks EUC will be DOA in his committee.

To paraphrase Jack Nicholoson from the movie BATMAN, "this Congress needs a enema". (I think it will get one in November)

Next time Im at happy hour, I'll look around for the Senator, (maybe he can get my girlfriend a job)

Cheers!

Actually, she bowed out of the nomination for that job when they started getting serious. And that quote of the 99 weeks, his office apparently has denied. I'm still trying to find out if that was a real quote or a series of misquotes, since everything else he has spoken about unemployment and jobs has been a lot more sympathetic.

Hi Nancy-

Hope you are doing well, thanks for adding some color to this. You are correct he withdrew the nomination, (I should of said he nominated his girlfriend, not got her appointed) .

I hope you are right and that the Senator didnt say that 99 weeks are enough (I saw that in print from multiple sources) , but as we all know , the media is capable of making mistakes. But if the Senator's office is backing away from that statement , that is a plus for us in any case.

However, this Senator exhibits behavor that ranks him up pretty high with many of the other clowns in our Congress.

See this article: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1209/30478.html

Its one thing for Tiger Woods to have girlfriends or even give money to them, at least Tiger cant raise my taxes or make my existing health care plan illegal. However when the Senator pays his girlfriend (who works for him) or takes her on a "official" trip its my money he is spending and I tend to take that rather personally. Not to mention that the health care bill he rammed thru his committee last summer was a assault on my rights (IMO) as a private citizen.

Lets hope he attempts to repent by pushing a Tier V. Take Care

Sen. Baucus Admits He Didn't Read Obamacare Bill

Post  sc4ram on Fri Aug 27, 2010 1:17 am

I posted this on the Health Care thread, but thought it should go here too. This guy, who is as responsible as anybody for pushing this poor excuse of a bill thru the Senate this year, walks into a local town hall meeting and admits he didnt read it? He may well have a drinking problem.....................

Sen Baucus was a no show on the President's Deficit Commision

Post  sc4ram on Thu Jan 06, 2011 2:31 am


Looks like Sen Max is quite newsworthy lately. In this interview (minute marker 1:41) fmr Sen Alan Simpson (co-chair of the recent Deficit Commision) was talking about Sen Baucus (who was a member of the commission) said that Mr. Max was a no show at the meetings. Perhaps the Senator has lost interest in his job (except for his love interest)
