Hartmann and Pocan on the idiotic Pelosi rule

Continuing this post, they discuss that insidious rule that would require 60% of Democrats to approve of any legislation that raises taxes on the bottom 80%. It was a Republican rule that some think must be maintained but we the people need to contact Pelosi and our reps to tell them to scrap this stupid rule. Otherwise it could very well sabotage any progressive reform.

Btw, you can see the proposed rule on p. 5 of this document, called "protect the middle class from tax increases." It's real name should be "protect the corporate Dems from passing any progressive reforms."
