Like the Gang of Fourteen that stopped the “nuclear option” in 2005, and the “Gang of Six” that ended up doing nothing for health-care reform, Joe Lieberman is looking to cobble together another gang of moderate senators to reach a deal on extending the Bush tax cuts in some way. “It’s an awful word,” Lieberman says, “but we need another gang.” [TPM DC]
