Lucky Max Baucus Represents Virtual Montanans

Senate Finance Chair Max Baucus plays a key role in health care reform. The NYT reported:

“I think I’m the luckiest guy in the world,” he said in an interview in his office. “Here I am representing Montana in the United States Senate. I am at the point to be able to do something really significant, really meaningful, and it must be done.”
Representing Montana? Really? Senator Baucus took campaign donations from eight for-profit health care companies with no, as in zero, facilities in his state.

Between Dirty Max, the Obama team's Chamber of Commerce reform lingo, Obama's appointment of a for-profit insider Health Czar, and a mostly purchased Congress, signs point to health care deform.
