Step Up, Schumer

to the editor:

now that senator max baucus' quest for bipartisanship on a healthcare "reform" bill has churned out a mish-mash that neither republicans nor democrats support, is it possible for the committee to vote to replace him temporarily with a democrat to shepherd this bill through? the senate parliamentarian says, gee, what a good a question. the senate rules committee person who answers the phone says that technically the democratic caucus can vote to do that but they won't. but our very own senator, chuck schumer, is a member of the committee. and he's in favor of a serious healthcare reform bill. so how about it, senator?
