HuffPost Editor Roy Sekoff appeared on the Ed Show to discuss the latest on the fight for health care reform, and took the opportunity to blast Sen. Max Baucus and the bill he is scheduled to release from the Senate Finance Committee tomorrow. Reacting to former insurance executive Wendell Potter, who told a House committee today that the Baucus bill is an "absolute gift" to the insurance industry, Sekoff said, "Truth be told, it's not technically a gift since the insurance and health industry actually paid for it with the over $3 million it has donated to Baucus since 2003." Sekoff also lamented that the debate over a public option is winding down to "is a watered down public option better than nothing?"
