A lot of questions, few answers, Baucus says after all-day session
Members of the Senate Finance Committee, emerging from a sometime-contentious, all-day closed-door meeting, said they were no closer to an agreement on a proposal that would create a public health plan, but added that many more opportunities to find common ground exist.
There are a lot of questions, not a lot of concrete answers, committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) told reporters after the 8-1/2 hour walkthrough. But the senator also said that the purpose of the meeting was to spur conversation, not hammer out a deal.
