Reconciliation

Today I interviews Sens. Mark Warner and Bob Corker, tried to clarify the confused discussion over the taxes paid by the poor, and gave Blanche Lincoln props for sending a long-overdue "shudder" through Wall Street.

Here's what I didn't get to:

1) Sen. Ted Kaufman has an idea for preventing bailouts of big firms. Don't let them get so big.

2) Scott Brown has a hilarious -- sorry, "independent" -- conception of how legislating works.

3) Republicans having trouble agreeing on whether to run on specific ideas or whether to run on not having specific ideas.

4) Did Cato just kill Mitt Romney's presidential candidacy?

Recipe of the day: More uses for pizza dough.

For anyone interested in discount educational products and furniture, I found a great site ( http://appleschoolsupply.com/ )! They have a huge selection, their prices are phenomenal, and their customer service is second to none!

I fully support a punitive comment spammer tax.

"I interviews"? You're starting to sound (type) like me.

Kato stopped Mitt Romney? Where was the Green Hornet?

Kevin,

me too (unless it gets me a real good deal on Ed Hardy jeans and then all bets are off ;-)

I'm 100% with Kaufmann. I've never gotten why government regulators couldn't say NO to mergers. Too bad he's leaving the Senate.

I think the GOP has got to go with the not having specific ideas in the contract. Why?
Because the GOP does NOT HAVE Specific Ideas.
I love that there's a split...so they actually have to make TWO 10-point documents out of their ONE and only idea...NO.
With numbers still below the Dems. and Obama, anti-incumbent fever (there are a LOT of incumbent GOPers)why do we keep thinking 2010 is a slam dunk? Remember the last time someone said that? I'm optimistic-I'm thinking 1934 if we get our mojo going. There is so much working on the Dem side...what have the other guys done for ya lately?
Do these guys have ANY original ideas? I mean, they can't even come up with a new idea-not just a re-tread of nutty Newt's 1994 stunt? Oh whoopie-another contract with America.
Here's a birther moment: Where's the document with America's signature on it? Huh???

With the unfolding debacle in Massachusetts, why doesn't Romney take the tack of, "we tried that, and it's blowing up costs faster than before."

staticvars,

The hope (no the prayer) is that Senate President Murray is planning to tell providers that they cannot be paid more for just market clout. They have to PROVE they are better consistently and then they'll get patients to come their way because of that as opposed to using their name to extort (alright maybe too strong a word) better pricing from insurers and then in turn more costs to consumers.
