54. Guess who is exec director of the debt commission. Bruce Reed.
Edited on Sat May-22-10 09:31 AM by madfloridian
The guy who made the deal with Gingrich under Clinton.

"Bruce Reed, whom Bowles and Simpson recently named as the commissions executive director, can help Fudge brainstorm slogans. Reed is CEO of the corporatist Democratic Leadership Council (previously chaired by Joe Lieberman for six years, and now by Hamilton Project advisory board member and Blue Dog Harold Ford, Jr), is very tight with Rahm Emmanuel (they wrote a book together), and coined the phrase end welfare as we know it. Any other social program Reed would like to end as we know it?"
