Can't Blame Us For Not Knowing What We Voted For

"This was a huge bill," Baucus said. "We agreed on structure. Then when
staffs and Treasury get in the room and actually write it, that's where
it got dropped. And frankly, it was such a rush, talking about the

conferees did not have time to address many of the provisions that were
modified significantly. We do the best we can, but we missed that stuff
as a result."
