Baron Hill on reality vs. perception

Baron, it would not only be "appearance" but reality-- if you and the Democrats forsake the traditional legislative process by moving to "reconciliation" (ironically named-- at least in this case!)...

From the AP (hat tip: C-J)...

"I don't like the reconciliation idea," said Rep. Baron Hill, D-Ind., one of the moderates. "It does give the appearance of trying to ram something through."

To Baron's credit, he's correct to note that this is troubling politically. Politicians don't want to seem like they're imposing costs on us-- independent of actually imposing costs on us.
