Cavuto to Baucus: If These Are Your Obamacare ‘Experts,’ Fire Them and Fire Yourself

'When that many people let you down and surprise you with costs you might not have seen coming, the buck has to stop with somebody, but unfortunately it's stopping with taxpayers'

BY:

"Your World" host Neil Cavuto had a message for Sen. Max Baucus (D., Mont.) concerning the staff he hired to explain the Obamacare legislation to him Thursday on FNC.

Cavuto played a video in which a questioner at a Baucus town hall asked the senator if he had read the Affordable Care Act:

TOWN HALL QUESTIONER: [Have] either of you actually read the healthcare bill?

MAX BAUCUS: I don't think you want me to waste my time to read every single word in the healthcare bill. You know why – that's statutory language. It takes a real expert to know what it is. We hire experts. They're right here. They work for me. They work for Secretary Sebelius.

NEIL CAVUTO: If those are the experts you're hiring, fire them, and fire yourself. I tell you, Senator [Barrasso], when that many people let you down and surprise you with costs you might not have seen coming, the buck has to stop with somebody, but unfortunately it's stopping with taxpayers.

Sen. Baucus has expressed apprehension that Obamacare may be heading for a train wreck.

The town hall exchange is included in a Free Beacon ranking of the Top 5 Moments in Sen. Baucus' Career.
