I keep saying I am not a Democrat because I have no idea what their economic policy is, and I am not a Republican because I know EXACTLY what their economic policy is. That is our policy choices: Inept cluelessness on one side, and hapless fantasy-based lunacy on the other.

  1. Progressives are not quite the same beast as Democrats, but the Congressional Progressive Caucus has come up with an interesting budget. Of course, it's more typical of an European Social Democracy than anything we've got. So I doubt it has any chance of being passed in whole or part. But it's still kind of interesting.

  2. Paul,

    Thanks for pointing that out. Maybe we should try to get Democrats to sign a pledge to support it the way the Tea Party gets Republicans to sign all their silly pledges.
