A New Rule

The Baucus bill now has 564 amendments proposed. I'll propose a new rule, where any bill that gets more than "X" number of proposed amendments must be rewritten. "X" could be 200 or 300 or whatever, but at some point we need a good bill without hundreds of changes.

Agree - anything with that many amendments would be so confusing people won't even know what they're voting on and I certainly don't know what will be in it.

I actually read the proposed amendments, (couldn't sleep), and I'm more confused than ever. Many contradict each other, and some are just goofy.
We need reform with a public option, not a bunch of mumbo-jumbo.
