So the Progressive Caucus puts out a budget in which the numbers all add up, the deficit is cut, people are put to work, kids are educated and old people are taken care of and it's declared dead on arrival by all the pundits. Why? Because it raises taxes on millionaires --- which is such an outrageous proposal it might as well have been a proposal to fund the government with unicorn spit. If only they'd strap some guns to their legs, slap some tri-corner hats on their heads and start babbling about tyranny and liberty then maybe the media would take it seriously.
But whatever meretricious garbage Paul Ryan slaps into a binder will be talked about for weeks on end.
