This afternoon we’ve got an exciting Live Chat with economist Jared Bernstein. Jared’s been of the top progressive economists in DC for as long as I can remember. More recently he was Vice President Biden’s Chief Economist and top Economic Advisor — and in general a top White House economics player during the first Obama term. Now he’s at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. A lot of you are asking now, what about this or that detail in the rumored/leaked fiscal compromise plan? What about the tax rate level? What about Chained CPI? Jared knows these things like the back of his hand, the pros and cons and also has no little insight into how this White House makes decisions. So don’t miss your chance. Jared joins us at TPMPrime at 4 PM. But you can get your questions in now.
