Per the Hill, I see that Max Baucus said the Finance Committee was going to rewrite its health care legislation to cut $600 billion from its price tag after they were told by the Congressional Budget Office that the draft they were considering would cost $1.6 trillion. Contrary to the Roll Call report I cited earlier, Baucus is being vague on whether committee members would begin marking up the bill before or after July 4 recess. Either way, this is clearly a set back for Democrats.
