Simpson-Bowles would have: raised taxes by $1.2 trillion--bumping to 21% the tax share of GDP from the typical 18%; relied largely on defense cuts to reduce spending; retained all $2.5 trillion in ObamaCare spending and done nothing to reform Medicare and Medicaid. No wonder Luke Russert loved it.
Appearing on Chuck Todd's Daily Rundown on MSNBC today, NBC congressional correspondent Russert bemoaned Simpson-Bowles overwhelming defeat in the House yesterday.

Luke laments Simpson-Bowles defeat. Ping to Today show list.
It took Tim decades of being lied to and spun by every politician he interviewed to get to the point he was at when he passed. Tim may have cut his teeth working for Democrats, but he eventually became so jaded and appropriately skeptical that he seemed above it all. I honestly think he didn’t particularly like any of them (except, probably, Pat Moynihan). I respected Tim Russert. Luke is no Tim. Not yet, anyway.
This guy’s reporting qualifications are what, exactly ?
The networks hire lots of unqualified people. At a minimum, the unqualified should be good looking and have a nice set of boobs. Luke Russert is neither, he is just a boob.
Whatever side Alan Kooi Simpson is on, take the other one.
