Baucus Bill May End Up Being a Mere Rough Draft

The Washington Post reports on the Baucus health care bill being debated in the Senate Finance Committee.
Baucus has promised to resume committee work Tuesday. But the fight is increasingly shifting away from him and onto the Senate floor, where 99 other independent-minded lawmakers are already scheming about how to put their stamp on what could be the most significant piece of domestic-policy legislation in a generation.

In a plodding week of partisan sniping, the bill that was supposed to be President Obama's greatest hope for a grand bipartisan solution was instead described as little more than a decent rough draft, certain to be rewritten by others.

Of course, it might be easier to debate and amend the bill if they'd actually publish it for both Senators and the public to read.
