This is not an actual photograph of the amendments that have been tacked on to Max Baucus's health care bill, but it might as well be — there are 564 of them, so far! (I believe legislators do this in order to support their argument that other legislators "have not read the bill.")
All of his changes, though, would add billions to the cost of a bill whose chief accomplishment was its relative austerity.
That'll go over without any outlandish complaints about Socialism, I'm sure.
Anyway, the Senate Finance Committee is "marking up" the Baucus bill with all its amendments right this very minute, which is reason #4,203,198 why you should be glad you are not on the Senate Finance Committee. (Reason #4,203,197 is "having to sit next to Chuck Grassley while he's Twittering.")
