Health Care: Three-Eighths Bad

So. Word is that President Obama, Senator Baucus (D-Insurance), and Senator Dodd (D-Ct) will be hammering out the Senate compromise bill. Since the Finance Committee bill (Baucus) is bad and the HELP bill (Dodd) is half-bad, I figure that means the Senate will pass a bill that's three-quarters bad. Add it to the House bill, which is pretty good, and I figure you get a bill that is three-eighths bad. Maybe...maybe that's a decent start.
