Here's a new piece
by our Brian Beutler I've been eagerly awaiting. If you follow political news or watch cable TV, the mood and dynamics of the partisan squabble over financial sector reform couldn't be more different from that over Health Care Reform. Suddenly that 60 vote filibuster threshold just doesn't seem to scare Democrats that much. So what's up? Simple. As much as Dems are eager to pass financial sector reform, the politics of having Republicans go to the mat to defeat it
don't look so bad either.
