In her first appearance on Meet the Press, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow brought up one of those other cable news talkers:
Democrats have a huge 60-seat majority in the Senate. And therefore they’ve got big majorities on every committee too. But Max Baucus, who is a democratic senator, has decided on the Senate Finance Committee which has this key role on what happens next, that they won’t have the whole committee do it. It’ll just be three democrats and three republicans who are going to make that decision. One of the republicans is going around country and giving out Glenn Beck’s book and saying that healthcare reform will pull the plug on grandma — Sen. Grassley.
