The heads of the Democratic and Republican parties appeared today on Tim Russert's program, and spent most of their time (predictably) on insults and cheap shots and almost none of it actually proposing policy.
So...if I were king (or head of one of the major parties), what would I propose?
- Get the budget under control
- Get Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the other entitlement programs solvent for the long-term
- Get government regulation under control so innovative businesspeople and entrepreneurs can spark the economic growth we need to afford all of these expensive wants
