Baucus Balking On "HumptyCare": Delay It

The chief architect of Obamacare, Max Baucus, once referred to Obamacare as a "train wreck". Now he refers to this mess as "Humpty Dumpty".

[Democrat Max Baucus thinks the president should seriously consider delaying the individual mandate tax on Americans who don’t purchase health insurance by March 31 -- that is, if isn’t up and functioning properly sometime in the next 30 days.

But wait a minute. Earlier in the week, he called Senator Marco Rubio’s bill to delay that specific provision “inappropriate.”

So what’s changed your mind, Senator?

Baucus, in a new interview, compares President Obama's new health-care exchanges and the accompanying Web site to "Humpty Dumpty."
Baucus also said he's open to delaying the penalties for those who don't obtain insurance by the current March 31 deadline.

"Let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much Humpty Dumpty can be fixed, in the next month," Baucus told KYAA-AM. "And if it looks like Humpty Dumpty's not getting put back ... together, then maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties."]


I'm just glad the progressives are speaking in the nursery rhyme-mentality of the Useful Idiots who put them charge. LOL!!
