Will The Village Dems Be "Radicalized"?
Ezra Klein going DFH on the Senate shenanigans on the jobs issue:
The Senate Finance Committee has released a draft (PDF) of its jobs bill[. . .]:[. . . T]here are two process agreements that are essential to completing action on [the jobs bill.] Fulfilling these agreements has been a condition precedent to the bipartisan discussions that have occurred. [. . .] [W]e are committed to timely consideration of permanent bipartisan estate and gift tax reform.
[. . .] This is the compromise that appears to have led to this package: not a better or bigger or more tax-focused jobs bill, but massive tax cuts for the rich. Tell me again why Democrats are bothering with a bipartisan jobs bill rather than running the legislation through reconciliation?
(Emphasis supplied.) Uh oh, Ezra. you are risking being a Not Serious Person with this kind of stuff. Careful.
Speaking for me only
