Ian Scott on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 11:26:48 pm

Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) has released a health care reform bill that he called, "one of the largest pieces of social legislation in American history since the depression."  The $856 billion proposal differs from House bills by not including a government run public option.  It instead would establish consumer owned co-ops to compete with private insurance.

Baucus, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee and leader of the bi-partisan 'Gang of Six,' was unable to secure a public endorsement of this plan from any of this Republican colleagues.
