What the People Want

The title is from a post by Kevin Drum. He points out,

“Out in real America, people want to tax the rich, cut stupid weaponsprograms, and stop subsidizing prosperous oil companies. They don’t want to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, or education.”

Which is great and all. But I want to focus on another line from the post –

“Democrats, if they could manage to agree on a halfway coherent message, most likely hold all the cards in a budget showdown”

Yeah. So it works in theory, but if it’s dependent on the Democrats doing the politics right, then you can certainly expect it not to work out.
