2014 is right around the corner. If we don't want a replay of 2010 then our DC pols need to be pushed on a few things. My list of do's and don'ts in priority order:
Filibuster reform - to accomplish the rest
Fix Obamacare - put in place something like a PO to drive down premiums. Mandate kicks in 2014 and there better be a way for folks to get decent insurance at an affordable rate.
Immigration reform - The GOP is going to be very willing to tackle this issue. Let's do it now on our terms.
Offer any 'grand bargains' that include entitlement cuts. Any tinkering with entitlements should be things like raising cap on FICA payments.
Offer 'bipartisanship' by proposing watered down GOP policy. We are the Party in position of strength - use it.
Congrats to all the winners last night, us.
That is all.
