  •  Connolly is my parents' Rep. (0+ / 0-)

    I personally think Connolly is a grandstander, and I supported him over Leslie Byrne, whose views much more closely match mine.  Connolly needs his hand held on every single vote.

    He opposed getting the surtax as low as $350,000 because he feared two-earner income families in his district would be punished.  He opposed changing the tax treatment of employer-provided health insurance -- the only way to make health care reform deficit neutral over the very long run as only health care costs grow as fast as health care costs.  And now this.

    At some point, if you draw enough lines in the sand, some are going to get washed away.  That's just the reality.
