    choice in front of us. Do we want the tax and budget policies of the progressive Democratic success model of President Clinton, or the tax and budget policies of the failed model of President Bush?

    Even Democrats are treating a return to the Clinton era tax revenues as a disaster to be avoided. Once we have the much taxation booked, we could certainly trade to make it more progressive, and work to get extensions of unemployment benefits.

    But, once we lock in the unsustainably low tax revenues of the Bush era, we will have no choice but to continue to slash social programs and even defense which simply can not be sustained at Bush levels.
