  •  It's not career suicide... (6+ / 0-)

    It's career advancement.

    She's been a senator for a pretty long time. Long enough that I've actually voted for her, and I haven't lived in Arkansas in 12 years. I doubt she wants to go through a close campaign in a state that is trending stupid, err Republican. Her opposition to this bill would look great on her resume when applying for a lobbying job or industry job. Corporations reward those who betray their constituients to help monied interests. This may be the route Blanche is taking in her career.

    The top tax bracket should be 90% for all types of income over $1,000,000.

    •  It's time to start monkey-wrenching those plans. (5+ / 0-)

      If Senator Lincoln is interviewing as an industry hack, we need to make sure she is so radioactive that even the crony capitalists would dare not put her in any lucrative position. The same should apply to Senator Lieberman, as well.

      They tortured people
      To get false confessions
      To fraudulently justify
      Invasion of Iraq!
