This liberal rat is just trolling for votes in his upcoming reelection. He pushed 0care, he needs to go down in flames.

Baucus, it would seem, really endorses this person if not his policies, but for some reason he is telling MT people differently. They are very easily fooled in MT too.
Unfortunately this rat was re-elected in 2008 so he will be around a while. Why states like Montana and the Dakotas elect rats I’ll never know!
He doesn't seem as concerned when Bozo issues his EOs, which also by pass the legislative process and in many cases are unconstitutional. EOs were never intended to be used to make law.
This is just complete window-dressing for Baucus— “protesting” - oh really Sen. Baucus, are you going TO DO anything—and will any of your Senate colleagues do anything about having Dr. Death in charge of the poor and the old (that would be M’Caid and M’Care).
“Unfortunately this rat was re-elected in 2008 so he will be around a while. Why states like Montana and the Dakotas elect rats Ill never know!”
agricultural subsides...pure and simple.
