Top Democrat on ObamaCare: “I just see a huge train wreck coming down”

Posted by on Apr 17, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Good thing you read the bill before you voted for it, Max.

Oh, wait.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) said Wednesday he fears a “train wreck” as the Obama administration implements its signature healthcare law.

Baucus, the chairman of the powerful Finance Committee and a key architect of the healthcare law, said he fears people do not understand how the law will work.

“I just see a huge train wreck coming down,” Baucus told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a Wednesday hearing. “You and I have discussed this many times, and I don’t see any results yet.”

Baucus pressed Sebelius for details about how the health department will explain the law and raise awareness of its provisions, which are supposed to take effect in just a matter of months.

“I’m very concerned that not enough is being done so far — very concerned,” Baucus said.

He pressed Sebelius to explain how her department will overcome entrenched misunderstandings about what the healthcare law does.

“Small businesses have no idea what to do, what to expect,” Baucus said.

Well, Max, you can always try to regain your dignity by voting to repeal this train wreck.

    Yeah, this has been largely the doing of Max Baucus. Plenty of enablers to help him. I’d apologize for sending him except I’ve voted for his opponents since I got here.

    Max Baucus is a Democrat…I don’t think he can regain his dignity. That gets surgically removed when you join the Democrat Party, or maybe they have a pill for that. Anyway dignity is not something that Democrats worry about. For proof just look at Biden, Slick Willie, Barney Frank… the list just goes on and on.
