Everything has gone quiet lately…too quiet. Either party leaders have some kind of eleven dimensional chess plan in motion, as John Chait thinks, or the issue honestly has moved to a back burner. I might feel more encouraged if the President would whip support for a specific plan of action (like, again, he did for Ben Bernanke) rather than these vague words of encouragement that we heard at the SOTU and after. On the other hand, if he truly is waiting for
Godot Snowe then we are all hosed.
Pestering your elected officials can’t hurt. Even if we don’t win it will feel better than yelling at the TV.
