    How large would the Democratic majority have to be before you would consider it FAIR?

    •  Okay (0+ / 0-)

      How about the commission being a reflection of Congress; or if we had to, how abvout a 50/50 split with real Democrats and not DINOs like Baucus and Conrad?

      •  Congress - (0+ / 0-)

        57% Democrats and 41% Republicans in the Senate.

        58% Democrats and 41% Republicans in the House.

        The Commission 56% and 44%.  

        A very slight advantage to the Republican side on a commission which will do nothing but issue a report full of recommendations.

        Senator Max Baucus, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee.

        Senator Kent Conrad, Chair of the Senate Budget Committee.

        Seems like one would want the most relevant committee heads in the talks....
