Really, this is a testament to the success of our firm's lobbying practice. A member of our team had met with Senator Baucus shortly before this occurred.
Consistent with our methods, she used all appropriate measures, and quite a few inappropriate ones, to persuade the Senator to support a key loophole in the health care reform package. She assures us that alcohol was really a minor player in this incident.
