75. No I don't
What I am referring to is that the worst things in your excerpt are NOT in the letter.

What I think is that those words, praising the committee, are typical diplomatic wording - and they go on to say that they do not necessarily agree with the conclusions. These are typical of the language that is used in the Senate. It is not just "my good friend ...., but acknowledging the effort made (even if they don't like the conclusions.)
I was not speaking of a campaign stump speech - but a very serious, wonky Senate speech speaking of all that needs to be on the table. What is clear is that until this is worked on, there will be bills - every 2 or 3 weeks, that incrementally kill everything Democrats spent years working on. Now before you ask why, with one House, the Republicans can do this - the answer is that for anything to exist there must be a budget.

The point they are making is that they want to start the work that will have to be done on this.
