There is a video being passed around with Senator Max Baucus speaking on the senate floor, apparently drunk.

To me this is not so much about him possibly being drunk. It’s about the constant whining we hear from democrats. He didn’t talk about any pro points on health care reform. He simply bashed the Republicans for supposedly succumbing to pressure from their party.

What is clear to me, and a lot of other conservative republicans, is that the democrats don’t want a bipartisan bill. They want THEIR BILL passed, with republican support. The republicans have offered their opinions on what they believe is true reform, but the democrats don’t want anything to do with it.

The republicans are listening to their constituents. And for that, we can appreciate their strength in not bowing down to the democrats.
