Megan McArdle Gets Paid To Write

Should the Senate end the filibuster? « Megan McArdle:
"As I understand it, there is about a 0% chance that Democrats will retake the House in 2014, which means that Republicans already have quite an efficient veto over any legislation they might like to pass.  Meanwhile, there’s about a 70% chance that Republicans will control the White House, the House, and the Senate come January 2017.  Without the filibuster in place, Republicans could do a lot of damage to programs that Democrats like.  That seems an expensive risk to run in order to get some presidential nominees through, however mad you are about GOP obstructionism."

Although I have to note that this one she did for free. Which presumably means that it was so stupid that no respectable publication would touch it.
