Sen. Max Baucus no longer fears "huge train wreck." #Obamacare "train is going to keep running, pretty efficient"

Montana Democrat Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, has seen the light. Can we get an "amen"?


Yes, Baucus has backed off his Affordable Care Act "I just see a huge train wreck coming down" assessment and is becoming a believer.

The Hill:

"We'll see Oct. 1, but I think they are doing a pretty good job," Baucus said in an interview with Fox Business Network. "I think the train is going to keep running, maybe not totally on time, but it's going to be pretty efficient."

The Montana Democrat was one of the Affordable Care Act's chief architects, and made waves in April by saying that public ignorance about the law could significantly hamper its implementation.

Meantime, House Republicans are preparing for their 42nd Repeal Obamacare vote, because clearly there is nothing else going on in this country equally worthy of their time and attention. Read how Tim Huelskamp justifies how the next House vote to repeal the law of the land will be so much better than the other 41.

You can stop laughing now. Or crying.

And by "so much better," Huelskamp means so much more desperate (the increasingly entertaining clash on #ObamaCare has also opened up a GOP civil war), because once Obamacare kicks in, all those harebrained obstructionists will look like the embarrassing, shortsighted infants they are.

    "all those harebrained obstructionists will look like the embarrassing, shortsighted infants they are."
    They have looked that way for quite some time but they and their fans never notice. They never admit they are wrong, and when their conspiracy theories fall flat they simply move on to the next attack, or even keep repeating the old attack line. For example they have been accusing Obama for years of scheming to take away their guns. People have been predicting their defeat at the polls for a long time too. They were bats**t enough for me already in 2010, yet they increased their share of the vote.
    Democrats have to stop expecting that the wingnuts will embarrass themselves into electoral oblivion and have to be more proactive.
