      perhaps, a chess play, but to my ears, Schumer taking out Bowles-Simpson as they spent their first day of three retreat sequestered with the gang of six, now eight, at Mount Vernon was excellent timing.

      These fuckers are up to no good, except for Wall Street.

      I wonder if Washington is listening to legislation without representation  behind his hallowed closed doors?

      good initially. I believe the part of Simpson Bowles he disagrees with is raising the taxes on the wealthy - he wants the top 2 tax rates "frozen".

      So there you go. He's not a champion of Simpson Bowles because it's awful, it's beginning to look like he's not a champion of Simpson Bowles because it's not awful ENOUGH.
