I want a revolution, you want to make your mark:
— A soda tax could raise most of the money necessary to bring the Baucus bill subsidies up to House bill levels.
— Ron Wyden explains what he’s trying to do.
— Apparently Harry Reid can fix many of the problems with the Baucus bill as he merges it with the Senate HELP text.
— Reihan Salam offers a very modest proposal on health reform; it’s a good idea, but there’s no reason to think that small.
— Probably time for the President to hold a health care town hall somewhere in Maine; in fact, not sure why he didn’t go in August at the high tourist season.
