    Sometimes you should fight even when you know you’re going to lose.  Elizabeth Warren deserved no less.  The blocking of her nomination by Republicans needed to be exposed.  I fear there’s a pattern here of caving in face of their opposition and giving them a victory without a fight.

    New York Democrats have quite the dillemma when it comes to bad behavior in finance.

    Stop it, and the excess pay that goes with it, and the city and state tax base will be much smaller in the short run, leaving less money for Democratic interest groups.  Which is why they yell “tax the rich” instead of “hey, did they really earn those riches to start with?”

    But if they don’t stop it, in the long run the New York tax base will disappear like Detroit’s as customers finally wise up to being ripped off and then cannot be lured back even if things improve.
