Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) on Monday sought to squash claims that Democratic leaders were drafting final healthcare reform legislation behind closed doors.Which, of course, means they are doing just that. For the record, I think this is a bipartisan phenomenon, but that still doesn't make it right.
For me though, it is not at all clear who should be more worried by this development, those who oppose the legislation or those that favor it. Which group has more to lose by a move to craft the legislation in secret seems like a 50/50 proposition to me.
