Politico’s Arena has a discussion among both Democrat and Republican legislators that sees a surprising optimism for Democrats. This comes in the wake of John Boehner putting Dems’ chances at about one-in-three.

Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio thinks the Ryan budget will be the GOP’s millstone, claiming they want to “dismantle” Medicare. (If only, right?) The hat-loving Rep. Frederica Wilson dips into delusion, saying that Republicans “are intentionally starving efforts to jump start the economy” – as if the GOP holding one-half of one of three government branches gives them ultimate control.
