Alone! No one joined Baucus to help push his “compromise!”

Look at all those empty seats as Sen. Max Baucus stands alone in Senate Committee Room!

Curt has the full story on the much vaunted “compromise” health bill introduced today by Sen. Max Baucus, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. This was the bill Dems hoped would attract some GOP support and they couldn’t even get Maine’s Olympia Snowe to support it.

Worse yet, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) plans to vote against it for raising taxes on middle class coal miners in his state. This bill has so little support that Baucus couldn’t even get the usual Dem posse to line up behind him for a photo op.

New Poll Shows Record Opposition to Dem’s Health Plan

I suppose Sen. Rockefeller and other Democrats have been reading the latest Rasmussen poll which shows opposition to Democrat’s plans is at an all time high (55% oppose, 42% support) less than one week after Obama’s partisan speech to a joint session of Congress.
