Factcheck.org is pretty busy analyzing the 21 hour talkathon (not a filibuster) by Senator Ted Cruz and others in the US Senate this week.

Max Baucus

One of the incorrect attributions by Senator Cruz was about fellow Senator Max Baucus’s comment on the implementation of the ACA being a train wreck. Senator Cruz changed that quote to suit his own needs .as reported by Factcheck.org .

“The facts are clear. It is a train wreck. As the lead author Democratic senator put it: It is a train wreck.” Cruz on the Senate floor

At an April budget hearing, the Montana Democrat upbraided Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for her department’s lack of planning to properly implement the law, and warned of “a huge train wreck coming down.” Baucus “was clearly commenting specifically on a concern he had about one aspect of implementation of the law — the rollout of the public awareness campaign,” Meaghan Smith, an aide to the senator, told us.

Baucus is no longer concerned about that, however. In a Sept. 16 interview with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney, Baucus said “I don’t expect a train wreck” when the exchanges open for business on Oct. 1.

Senator Cruz didn’t even quote Fox News’ interview with Senator Baucus correctly!
