    That's an absurd pipe dream. If we can't even get the top tier income tax rate raised by a few percentage points, how are we going to get a 13% increase passed? There's zero chance of that happening.

    If it gets raised a bit that will be very good, but it doesn't in any way balance out a lower COLA since it doesn't directly help retirees. And neither does a raise in the minimum wage.

    We decided to move the center farther to the right by starting the whole debate from a far-right position to begin with. - Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
