Recap: John Boehner's strategy for the Bush tax cuts; Andy Stern's plan to create 12 million jobs; and no one listens to the president.


1) On Peter Suderman's list of health-care reform's empty promises, Nos. 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 are clearly wrong, at least as written, and No. 1 is misleading. No. 4 is arguable. More on this tomorrow.

2) Steve Pearlstein makes the case that we're moving into a structural unemployment problem.

3) Fine, I'll say it: McDonald's is delicious.

4) Everything you wanted to know about infrastructure banks.

Recipe of the day: Southwest potatoes.

Waiting for the universe to collapse on itself...

can't wait until tomorrow on how we hear how #7 is wrong. I'm still waiting for the $2500 a year I (and everyone else) was promised.

Kind of surprised you're not trying to argue that MA is not Medicare and thus medicare's not being cut in relation to #4.

Most of the rest honestly also can't be answered yet. We'll see in 10 years where we're at.

McDonald's french fries are delicious, but you need to bring your own ketchup.

The rest of the menu, not so delicious.

The wild berry smoothie is yummy.

"can't wait until tomorrow on how we hear how #7 is wrong. I'm still waiting for the $2500 a year I (and everyone else) was promised."

The only way I see #7 as 'wrong' is if you include the subsidies, and not everyone is elligible for them.

Will be interesting to read what Ezra has to say about this list.
