Where’s the Democratic Alternative? 

The folks at the New York Times invited me to contribute another short piece for one of their “Room for Debate” discussions, this time on the possibility of a government shutdown if the current continuing resolution is not renewed next week. The piece is short enough that I won’t excerpt it here. I’ll just say that it asks where the Democrats’ actual proposals are, and makes a prediction about the price tag on what might pass the Senate.

You can find the piece here.
