Sen. Grassley has just used a poster of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” album cover to make a point about the tax extenders legislation, the nature of compromise and budget offsets.
The white light on the left side of the poster entering the prism is compromise. The multicolored beams are the various elements in the bill, including budget offsets. We must not break this prism into shards, Senator Grassley argues.
The Senator concludes: Use the prism that presents the opportunity to preserve tax relief for millions of middle-income families.
Which means this song must be used in news reports about today’s debate.
P.S. Perhaps it was in the way of a eulogy to keyboardist Richard Wright.
