If the definition of insanity involves doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results, Democrat Senator Max Baucus is as crazy as a rat in a barrel. 

The health care plan he just announced has the same features that doomed every state-level universal coverage plan. John Goodman provides an example:

The Baucus plan includes many of the same elements implemented in the Massachusetts mandated health plan, which is now suffering from massive cost overruns for the state and escalating premium costs for consumers. 

This is exactly what has happened every time this economically illiterate strategy has been attempted. You can’t repeal the laws of economics by government fiat.

I guess the bright side of this idiocy is that Baucus and the people who now control our government will prove once and for all that they are unable to learn from experience.

Maybe that will cause the voters to give them the bum’s rush—-again.
