This healthcare bill was, from the start, an exercise in intra-party negotiation – something the media seem to have forgotten about. This is one possible intra-party compromise.

Nobody gives a darn what the Republicans think. Even Max Baucus ‘reaches out’ to them simply because his goals are aligned with some of theirs, so long as you neglect that, for the Republicans, obstruction supersedes these goals.
