For all you deficit peacocks and Libertarian Lovers out there:
Dagny Taggart and John Galt have put in the call.
Your beloved risk-taking, tough-as-nails, macho entrepreneurs have told Congress they had better raise the debt ceiling in no uncertain terms.
So, why on earth would Dems negotiate with the GOP on this one? Smartly, Reid has started talking about getting rid of oil subsidies, and even Kent Conrad is talking about a tax increase for millionaires.
Still, like digby, I am not optimistic that Dems will get this no-brainer right.
