Read what bill?

Over the summer, many angry constituents showed up at town hall meetings demanding that their elected representatives at least read the massive health care bills before ramming them through. It sounds like a reasonable enough demand, don't you think?

Now comes the Baucus "Bill," from the Senate Finance Committee. There can be no demands that committee members read the bill before voting. Our fine senators have come up with a great workaround to that demand.

They intend to vote without writing a bill. That silly little detail can be taken care of after it passes.
