GOPer: Baucus 'style' health reform 'deceitful'

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) took to Twitter on Monday to label Sen. Max Baucus' (D-Mont.) "style" of healthcare reform "deceitful."

Baucus, who is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released his long-awaited healthcare reform proposal several weeks ago that did not include a public health insurance option favored by liberals. Conservatives, however, have criticized the bill's price tag and for failing to attract Republican support.

Hoekstra, who is running for governor of Michigan, tweeted on his campaign account:

I believe that health care reform (Baucus style) is deceitful.It shows Americans health care will be politicized rather than quality focused

Baucus' panel is still debating amendments to the bill. It is unclear when the committee will vote on the proposal.
