Arianna appeared on MSNBC's "Countdown" Friday night to discuss the flight of congressional Democrats from a vote on an extension of middle-class tax cuts that would allow the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy to expire.

Arianna outlined the various Democratic battle lines on tax cuts and backed Ezra Klein's assertion that Dems are "demonstrating a complete inability to govern."
