WANKER OF THE DAY….Chuck Schumer.
Look, I know Schumer’s job is to raise money, and I know that Wall Street for a New York senator is the equivalent of the corn farming industry for an Iowa senator. But still. If you write a book about how much you love the middle class, the least you can do is have the gumption to support taxing hedge fund billionaires at the same rate as everyone else. Hell, even Robert Rubin supports changing the tax rate on carried interest.
Blecch. I really hate the Democratic leadership sometimes. It’s a good thing for them I hate the Republican leadership so much more.
