The Debt Commission isn't so much a commission as it is two guy who disagree with all the other guys. None of this is going to go anywhere, so chalk another one up to the uselessness of blue ribbon panels.

The GOP announces what Steve Benen calls a "hostage plan" -- nothing moves unless the rich get to keep sucking on the public debt. Meanwhile, the unemployed get the shaft -- again.
