Gurian on the CLASS Act and the Perils of Incrementalism

Over at his interesting Remapping Debate site, civil rights lawyer Craig Gurian has posted a piece entitled Perils of Incrementalism on the recent CLASS Act maneuverings.  He argues that the case of the CLASS Act "raises important questions about the wisdom of having a strategy of always going for a legislative 'half a loaf,' especially when doing so obliges you both to understate the real costs of dealing with problems and to oversell the promise and potential of your solutions."  I'm often an incremental guy myself, but Craig's whole piece is worth a read.
