  1. Jake Tapper is not enchanted.Megan McCardle isn’t either.…when did it become the government’s job to intervene in the bankruptcy process to move junior creditors who belong to favored political constituencies to the front of the line? Leave aside the moral point that these people lent money under a given set of rules, and now the government wants to intervene in our extremely well-functioning (and generous) bankruptcy regime solely in order to save a favored Democratic interest group.No, leave that aside for the nonce, and let’s pretend that the most important thing in the world, far more interesting than stupid concepts like the rule of law, is saving unions. What do you think this is going to do to the supply of credit for industries with powerful unions?RTWTThen we have evidence either that Joe Biden disease is contagious or that they’re so confident they’ll threaten another private industry with extinction. A video-Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) at 0:07 And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who then argued against the public health insurance option saying it wouldn’t let private private insurance compete; that a public option would put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single-payer. My single-payer friends — He. Was. Right. The man was right. I, uh, I … here’s what I told him. I said, excuse me sir, the goal of healthcare reform is not to protect the private health insurance industry.at 1:09 I know many of you here today are single payer advocates and so am I … and those of us who are pushing for a public health insurance don’t disagree with this goal. This is not a principled fight. This is a fight about strategy for getting there and I believe we will.Can we use the “F” word now without being called racists? Or should we say “Beneficent Corporatist Disciplinarianism”
