Tab dump

1) A lot of liberals in Congress seem to have bought into the odd premise that the benefits that they receive would somehow be a step down for the rest of the country.

2) A lot of conservatives in Congress seem to think the way to show they're serious about deficit reduction is to reject one of the most far-reaching deficit reduction bills in history.

3) Think this year's Davos will end with a tearful apology?

4) America is very difficult to govern.

5) There is no evident correlation between presidential approval ratings in year one and year four.

I am also shivering in soggy CA, and made a big pot of lentil and sausage soup today. This is about the 4th lentil soup recipe I've tried, and by far the best. It's from Ina Garten's Barefoot in Paris, and starts by cooking onions, leeks, and spices for 20 minutes, until they melt into a sweet goo. The sausage is keilbasa. I recommend it.

Dump is right. You're seriously going to link to Jon Cohn crapping on Raul Grijalva for sticking by his promise not to vote for the Senate Bill. Progressives got exactly none of our top-line demands in this "negotiation." No public option. No medicare buy-in. No drug price negotiation or reimportation. No FOBs. No millionaire tax. So why is it ironic that Grijalva has good health insurance? Talk about hyprocrisy...

Oh, I forgot to add that Rep. Grijalva, in addition to being a very decent man, represents a heavily Latino district. The Senate bill is atrocious on issues of concern to Latino voters. A typical Latino worker will see his hours cut as his employer attempts to dodge the mandate. He will be hassled about the citizenship of everyone in his family. If someone is not a legal resident, they can't buy insurance with their own money. Why would Grijalva support that? It's insulting, frankly.
