Tillis has a gambling problem

Thomas Mills offers a smart take-down of the GOP's approach to fiscal responsibility today, with a post called Gaming the system. It's funny, in a sad sort of way, and brilliantly done. Check it out.

Meanwhile, Tillis is building a legislative record that no reasonable person could ever defend, and which will be the source of many pointed attacks over the next five months before the November election.

He also has a bigger education problem

For example, he would have voted with Republicans to block student loan refinancing, keeping average families under the thumb of big banks. The guy is a corporate whore in every way imaginable, and that's the very last thing we need more of in Washington.
