Harry Reid needs more than a weekend off. Perhaps we should, in the national interest, schedule a series of fundraisers for Reid running through the end of the year.

In recent days Democrats started floating the idea of a “Medicare Buy-In” proposal, and as of last night, there appears to be a deal, although the details are not fully known. I addressed the lack of merits in a prior post.
