When basic fee-based for these hedge funds and partnerships is taxed as ordinary income, like everybody else’s fee-based income, then there is a good chance that the “bought and paid for” Congress will actually be looking out for its constituents’ best interests.

One way not to run a decent newspaper is to run after rotten readership in sackcloth, ashes and a Berlin paywall. All of these, I wish The Post.
