David Firestone at the NY Times' editorial blog "taking note" is suspicious of Paul Ryan's tax plan. In fact, the folks at the Times have been suspicious of everything Romney and Ryan are proposing.
So just getting this straight ... We have a president who:
- promised to lower the deficit yet has instead increased it by 50%;
- promised with a $trillion "stimulus" to bring unemployment down to 6% yet has made it stay above 8% and yield anemic GDP growth;
- promised job opportunities for any American willing to work yet has spent less time with his jobs council than he has at 40,000-per-plate celebrity fundraisers, campaign events, TV show junkets, and golf outings;
- gave billions of said stimulus cash to cronies whose businesses have gone bankrupt;
- promised transparency yet has invoked executive privilege to hide his and his Attorney General's involvement in the 200+death "Fast and Furious" scandal, and has yet to come clean in knowing about yet failing to prevent attacks on our consulate in Libya which killed four Americans;
- promised his "health" "care" plan would lower premiums by $2,500 while instead they have increased by $3,000;
- not to mention that members of the Obama administration itself owes $800,000 in back taxes
... and you're spending time screaming about supposed flaws of Paul Ryan's tax plan?
Careful, NYT - Continue carrying on like this you might be accused of some sort of media bias.
Perish the thought.
