My unfavorable opinion of Sen. Baucus is reaffirmed and I still regret campaigning for him in '08!

Gee, it sure is a comfort to know that biofuel and rum lobbyists can still get Senate Finance Committee Pubs and Dems to trade favors; we can all feel better about tax policy and bipartisanship now, can't we?  Tongue

No.  How can they get checks from the corporations in the future if they are permanent?
