Sigh. Ryan Avent said this article was “so meta” on Twitter, and it is, but more than that I’m astonished the best newspaper in the country  can print the following sentence like it’s an opinion, not a fact:

[Obama] particularly believes that Democrats do not receive enough credit for their willingness to accept cuts in Medicare and Social Security, while Republicans oppose almost any tax increase to reduce the deficit.

This is the sort of thing that drove me up the wall as a tax and budget reporter.
