Step Up, Schumer

To the Editor:
Now that Senator Max Baucus’ quest for bipartisanship on a ” bill has churned out a mish-mash that neither Republicans nor Democrats support, is it possible for the committee to vote to replace him temporarily with a Democrat to shepherd this bill through? The Senate Parliamentarian says, gee, what a good a question. The Senate rules committee person who answers the phone says that technically the Democratic Caucus can vote to do that but they won’t. But our very own Senator, Chuck , is a member of the committee. And he’s in favor of a serious healthcare reform bill. So how about it, Senator?
