When I am President Clinton's Chief of Staff, all of my underlings will be required to have Keep It Simple, Stupid tattooed visibly. I don't mean the rhetoric and politics. I mean the policies. Stop the tremendous burden required to qualify for measly help that should just be universal anyway. No plans to set up tax incentives to encourage behavior to nudge blah blah. Pre-K? Make it happen. Free public universities? Make it happen. Health care? If we can't get rid of our stupid insurance system, at least reduce it to push a button, pay your bill, go see a doctor. Giving Atrios ONE BILLION DOLLARS? Make it happen. Especially that last one.
