Baucus now ready to abandon GOP pals

Baucus now says he will begin marking up health care legislation for 15 September, with or without the GOP.

Presumably he knows that the Senate HELP Committee is on track to get their own bill through the grinder in time for a reconciliation vote in October -- a vote which only requires 50 Senators, not 60. Perhaps Baucus fears the Senate will ignore him and his footdragging Republican "friends" like Enzi and Grassley.
