Tonight's GOP debate may crowd out a lot of important stories today. Here are some of the ones that deserve more attention than they're getting. Spread the word, and add to the list in the comments if you've got your own. Republicans want to raise taxes. You'd think that would be a lead, but no. A Republican presidential hopeful wants to raise taxes. Not on the rich; on you. And the dark lord of tax cuts, Grover Norquist, has a scheme to get more tax cuts for the rich -- use the money that now goes for farm subsidies. Yep. Rob from the farms, give to the rich. read more

Of course, tonight's big political story will be the GOP presidential debate. We'll be watching it, so you don't have to, and we'll bring you all the must-see TV you can handle. That said, there are a bunch of real stories about real issues that affect real people out there, too.Larry Summers calling for economic stimulus to spur job growth is a big deal.Or would be, in a saner world. The League of Expatriate Obama Advisers is now singing in virtual unison about the need to pump more money into the economy. Summers, Goolsbee, Romer, Bernstein. read more

Here are some of the stories I wish were getting a little more attention today!First up is a great piece of video in which Iowa state Sen. Shawn Hammerlinck (R) tells students he doesn't want them lobbying him. Here it is:  A new poll finds that a big majority of Americans think the economy will suffer serious harm if we default. Some of them want to do it anyway. Which means some Americans out there value their apocalyptic Tea Party ideology over the future of the nation itself. Shocker. Two government reports fail to find US getting anything for the billions it spends. read more

The Thursday Outlook

06/09/11 02:37PM

The National Journal finds that America has changed fundamentally -- embracing pessimism about the future. With the current political landscape making sane economic policy impossible, it's hard to blame them. But there are signs of hope.Bloomberg News reports that some in the Obama Administration are not content to sit on their hands as millions of Americans stare a life of joblessness in the face. They're reportedly looking at using payroll-tax breaks to goose hiring. It's not the most stimulative use of our money -- that would be aid to the poor and jobless (see page five). read more
