An Idea, Any Idea?

While a Congress in which one party theoretically has 60 votes in the Senate can probably walk and chew gum at the same time, it would be nice to know just what focusing on jobs and the economy would mean. For me it would mean direct aid to state and local governments and a massive public works project. To Evan Bayh it might mean cutting the corporate tax rate, or maybe it means nothing at all, but at least he could... propose that!

Reading through the Hill article, these centrists are actually making the case that voters, in the Change election, actually elected them with the hopes that they would do nothing. Interesting way to see things.
