Congress: Labor vs. Baucus/Conrad

Roll Call: "The Laborers' International Union of North America is targeting Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) with a television ad urging the two Senators to resist taxing health insurance benefits as a means to pay for health care reform."

Note that Democratic House chairman Henry Waxman, who helped write the energy bill and is also playing a key role in the health-care debate, has a book that's coming out this week entitled "The Waxman Report: How Congress Really Works." The book is co-authored by Atlantic Monthly writer (and First Read friend) Josh Green.
