Michael Needham is Marco Rubio’s chief of staff, so he is a professional liar, and Marco Rubio has no more interest in supporting the health and well-being of railroad workers than he does in supporting the health and well-being of Raul Castro.

But he illustrates an important point, one that I made last night, that Biden’s call for Congressional action to force a bad deal on rail workers is politically stupid.

At the very least, Biden can call for imposing a deal that is not a reward for railroad intransigence.
