Good for Ryan & some in GOP for acknowledging issue of poverty. Left should welcome fresh ideas. But Rx can't just be Trojan Horse 4 cuts.

@dougmcd3 nice pickup for @chicagobulls!Shouldn't it be taxpayers suing Congress for LACK of action, instead of Congress suing the President for doing too much?@UChiPolitics All-Star Fellows lineup: @SEIU_Eliseo @kevinbleyer @asymmetricinfo @PatrickMurphyPA & Steve Schmidt! http://t.co/hEBlIFTZTZIn other words, were black votes in MS for Cochran just a temp marriage of convenience, or will their votes Tuesday impact on his in Senate?Wondering if Cochran's much-ballyhooed outreach to black voters in MS will in any way impact on his approach to issues in Senate?
