Ezra Klein: “The Democrats have lost on sequestration.”
Yes, they have. Ignore all the self-serving nonsense that Klein then ladles out on behalf of the Democratic party – it was somewhat tired self-serving nonsense, anyway; possibly Klein doesn’t believe any of it, either – the bottom line is, the Democratic party thought that it could push this issue, and they’ve failed. Do you know what that means?
Yup. It means that we do it again. Only harder. After all, we’re not really cutting spending; what we just did was pretty much just hit the brakes a little to slow things down. Which is better than the Democrats’ strategy of flooring the accelerator, but it’s still not good. So let’s do that.
PS: Who the heck said that the Inhofe-Toomey bill is still on the table, Klein? I personally think that the next bill should start charging the President for the privilege of being more flexible on spending. Let’s say… for every million Obama moves around, he has to give up a half million. I’m willing to negotiate on the price, mind you.
Well, I’m willing to negotiate a little.
