Nancy Pelosi's beautiful plans

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has outlined her plans for her first 100 hours as the new House Speaker, if the Dems win the mid-term elections. And her plans are beautiful.

Day One: Break the link between lobbying and legislation.

Day Two: Enact all recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

Day Three: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, cut the interest rate on student loans in half, allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients, and increase government funding of stem cell research.

And, above all, "drain the swamp".

So what's the alternative (i.e., if the Republicans retain control)? More of the same: More war, more lies, more bogus terror alerts, more torture, more government corruption, richer billionnaires, and less of everything for the poor and the middle class. Oh, and probably the end of what remains of the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.

Shouldn't this be a no-brainer?
