      The GOP counters with - but the debt is still growing, year over year.

      Our good news about reducing the growth of the deficit gets lost - understandably - when we have to raise the debt ceiling year-over-year.

      I'm not trying to diminish the progress, for it is substantial. And most important, the GOP and the media ignore it, because it doesn't fit their message. But we should not fall into the same trap. News like Jed's is best accompanied by an acknowledgement of what our crazy-but-news-smart uncle at the dinner table will counter us with.

      2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
