They Hate Democracy

People tell me it's silly to fear the lame duck session. Maybe not:
In this report, we argue that the only way for Democrats to save progressive priorities like NASA, highway funding, and clean energy research is to reform entitlements. The lame duck offers Congress a “Now or Never” chance to set the terms of a budget deal that saves money on entitlements, raises revenue, and protects investments. And the heart of the Democratic brand is depending on it.

Update: Lizzi in comments reminds me that I should have mentioned that they don't mean old fashioned taxpayer funded stuff like the Eisenhower Highway System. They mean a National Infrastructure Bank that will move tolls and fees and suchlike into the private sector.
