    Labels Are Dangerous

    So, the Republicans want to blame the Democrats for abusing their majority and passing a healthcare law that makes no fiscal sense. And the Democrats blame the Republicans for using extortion tactics that are effectively equivalent to a temper tantrum... or taking their ball and...
