John Brummett drew out Sen. Mark Pryor on a potential Senate plan to provide for an increase in the debt ceiling. Spending discipline and tax increases would be included. Perhaps, he suggests, Republicans will not filibuster it so they can hang the tax increases in Democrats in 2012 elections. Fine. We can have government or we cannot have government. If people continue to vote against their interest, someday they might see the error.
