WSJ — Congress Veers Left on Health Care, The Baucus bill has been rejected by Democrats

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus unveiled his long-awaited health-care compromise this week to the sound of one hand clapping. You wouldn’t know it from the White House, which soothingly spun the Baucus bill as a breakthrough on the forced march to reform. We were told it was a good thing that the only person in Washington who liked Max Baucus’s bill was . . . Max Baucus. That everybody was unhappy meant we were getting somewhere. What matters is that the Senate now has a “common sense” product to serve as a “building block” for bipartisan legislation. Uh-huh.
