Robin Stelly commented on the blog post Answering the Charge of “What’s Plan B” for the Tax Cut Deal
I’m with you but I’m very concerned about the millions who will lose the UI and EITC and CTC benefits that are in the framework. The human shield thing works for a reason. Setting those concerns aside, I would love to see the whole thing fall apart, watch the stock market dive and the elites lose their minds as their wealth tumbles. Then we’d see some real compromise – hold the stock market hostage and stuff gets done.

And cost the economy 500K jobs.
