never seen a clearer demonstration of the maxim that lack of followership is a bigger political problem than lack of leadership

The data is clear: vaccines work. Throughout the Delta wave, the most vaccinated states have seen significantly fewer hospitalizations and fatalities. VT has stood out even among the most vaccinated places. Thousands of Vermonters get vaccinated every week. Join them. #OurShotVT

It's been seven days of "moderate" transmission. The Montgomery County mask mandate is gone.

Brian is totally right. But FWIW, this is only made possible by the fake expirations in the 2017 tax bill.
The latest Democratic SALT gimmick is so shameless. In order to "pay for" the immediate SALT tax cut, they would craft a fake SALT tax increase several years down the road - count the fake savings today as an offset - and then quickly cancel the tax. Just shameless.

serious negotiation between divergent philosophic approaches within a party is different from a make-it-up-as-you-go scramble to meet the idiosynchratic demands of individuals w/outsized power because majorities are so bare Biden/Democratic leaders are stuck w/the latter

The mark-to-market proposal would keep the tax rate at current law levels (Sinema!) However, it would provide flexibility in the future to raise rates on these taxpayers. Realizations would no longer decline if the rate on capital gains is raised.

I’m not sure people are appreciating how much revenue the M2M proposal is going to raise from gains that already occurred. Jeff Bezos is going to owe like $40 billion off the bat!

Schumer on Sept. 23: "The White House, the House and the Senate have reached an agreement on a framework that will pay for any final negotiated agreement. So, the revenue side of this, we have an agreement on." (He later said Wyden and Neal had agreed on a menu of options)
Remember when Schumer and Pelosi announced a “deal” on revenue for reconciliation? Fast forward to today. We have two brand new revenue pieces — one of which we don’t even have text for.

Pretty much every day another story emerges about threats of violence from Trump supporters- @ election officials, school boards, Congress, local govt. GOP (& conserv columnists) determined to ignore, but it's clear Trump has ignited an ongoing threat changing US landscape
NEW from me and @jeremyherb: secretaries of state around the country are living in fear, as threats from those convinced by Trump's election lies mount - and they don't see nearly enough being done to secure them on the state or federal level cnn.com/2021/10/26/politics/…

Democratic tax hike gets an endorsement from the GOP's favorite economist
I hope this measure is included in the ultimate bill. It will promote fairness and efficiency and by pushing tax and corporate reporting together will promote honesty in both. wsj.com/articles/corporate-m…

Good for NBC. Wish every major national outlet would follow suit. If we diverted half our polling budgets to embedding curious reporters in these communities year-round, it'd make for a healthier institution, better-informed citizenry, *and* more accurate electoral handicapping.
NBC is embedding reporters in 7 "key bellwether counties" ahead of midterms and one of them is..Washoe! Good choice. Used to be GOP stronghold, but now swing and statewide Dems have won there recently. Our recent poll shows Dem slippage. Welcome, @Guadvenegas! #WashoeMatters
