Progressives want a lot done. Some things, like accountability for torture and violations of constitutional rights, and for criminal activity undermining the financial system, won’t cost much to accomplish.

So, uh, what happened to make us embrace that idea that was so radical before the 2008 elections? If radical is now okay, let’s do a truly radical rewrite of the tax code.
