A Star-Ledger editorial says: “[W]hat’s missing from Christie’s critique [of Obama’s budget proposal] is the hard truth that no debt deal is possible until Republicans agree to significant tax increases as part of it. In the end, the political challenge is clear: We need Democrats who are willing to cut spending, especially in entitlement programs, and we need Republicans who are willing to raise taxes, especially on the wealthy.”
In other words, both parties can Bite Me. Christie can Bite Me, too, because he should know better than to “take shots at Obama and walk away. He needs to tell the hard truths to his own party. And when it comes to solving the debt problem, that has to include tax increases.”
And the Star-Ledger can also bite me. Their editorial is about the national debt. But their headline is about the deficit: “Gov. Christie should tell his own party the truth on national deficit.” Shame on them for getting the two mixed up.
