Nancy Pelosi and the neoliberals in Congress committed political harikari and gutted the entire Democratic Party, by making “pay-go” a part of the House rules.What this means is that a piece of legislation must offset costs, either by cutting somewhere else or by raising revenue. On the surface, this seems nothing less than prudent. In fact, it is already the established practice in the House. But in terms of politics it is the most colossally stupid idea to appear in a very long time. It’s also morally bankrupt.
