  •  So why isn't the people budget plausible? (3+ / 0-)

    If Ryan can get all this face time why can't the progressive caucus even get a hour with the President?  There is something very foul about locking your own party out of negotiations.

      and thus must be listened to. Can't you tell by how seriously he takes the debt??

    •  And if it's not plausible (0+ / 0-)

      How come it still reads as very middle of the road stuff that wouldn't be controversial if the media and political spheres hadn't been hijacked by right wing lunatics?

      I mean, if they're going to draft a budget blueprint that going to be dismissed as leftist idealism, let's at least make some news by putting some real leftist idealism in there - I'm thinking a restoring of 90% marginal tax rates, universal healthcare (including dental and mental), cutting military spending in half, etc. etc.
