Steve Soto over at Left Coaster gives a rundown own Reid's announcement of the Democratic Senate agenda. While he points out that this is not a unified plan, it brings together a lot of good ideas Democrats can use in the upcoming session.
I especially like Senate Bill 19, the Fiscal Security for a Sound Future Act. Fiscal responsibility is an area in which the Democrats can really smack around the Republicans. The only problem is, deficit reduction never won an election. It is responsible governance and it is the right thing to do. The Bush Administration has given up on taking any responsibility for this country's fiscal future and the "fiscal conservatives" in congress are letting him run with his bankrupt plans.
