Max Baucus on the Glory of ObamaCare

One of the authors of the new health care law offers reassurance to those anxious about the law’s effects.

"Mark my words, several years from now, you're going to look back and say, 'Well, that wasn't so bad after all,'" Baucus said.

It could be worse! That always makes me feel better. Maybe he’d think otherwise if he’d bothered to read the bill?

    Mark my words, several years from now, you're going to look back and say, "Well, now that my career and reputation have been totally clobbered I wish I hadn't uttered all that crap about the health care law."

    Well, now... that wasn't so good, now, was it?

    If Baucus is ever voted out, it's nice to know that he could get a job in advertising.

    "Max Baucus—he's the man whose name you'd love to touch...
    But, you musn't touch!
    His name sounds good in your ear
    But when you say it, you mustn't fear
    Because his name can be said by anyone!”

    Max should heed the admonishment of Mister Clemens:

    "It's better to sit quietly and have people think you a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt."

    "Well, that wasn't so bad after all"

    Yep, that's the kind of bold leadership we get from Team Blue. If we don't eventually say "that was a good idea and it changed our lives for the better," it had no business even being debated.

  • Ice Nine||

    Great to see these assholes striving for such high standards, no?

  • Fatty Bolger||

    Baucus: Bend over and think of the uninsured.

  • ||

    Hardly a ringing endorsement from the guy, is it?

    "Mark my words, several years from now, you're going to look back and say, 'Well, that wasn't so bad after all,'"

    Isn't that what Warty says to his sex partners?

    Yes, but he whispers it in German.

    If Baucus is ever voted out

    That's a big if.

    I think he comes up for re-election in four years; I want to see him to use, "Max Baucus- He's not as stupid as he sounds." as a campaign slogan.

  • An Average American Citizen||

    Max Baucus raped me one night. He crept into my home while I slept and tied me to my bed. I begged him to stop. He pulled down his pants and said "Mark my words, several years from now, you're going to look back and say, 'Well, that wasn't so bad after all.'"
    It was horrible!
