SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE. BAUCUS BILL. TESTIMONY FROM CBO DIRECTOR DOUG ELMENDORF. VOTE. BOOM. RIGHT NOW.
Holy baloney it's 10:00 a.m.! The Senate Finance Committee will now meet for perhaps (hopefully!) the last time, ever. First, a lil' testimony, a lil' CBO Director Doug Elmendorf action. Fap? He could say anything! Then: Chuck Grassley fires a rocket out of his ass. Oh boy. Then some other shit. THEN: the big vote, to finally get this bill out of committee, where it has been since the Fillmore administration. WHAT WILL OLYMPIA SNOWE DO? Oh my god. Oh my god. Here's the live feed, for nerds. No liveblogging just now, but maybe later? (Don't hold your breath.) [MSNBC]
