Come On ... I Mean, Come On. When Did the New York Times Become the Onion?

The New York Times editorial page is right about one thing. Republicans aren't very honest with the American people when it comes to taxes and the budget. Of course, the editorial page isn't very honest either (nor are the Democrats). "Repealing the Bush tax cuts" means raising taxes.

Sometimes it just seems as though the New York Times editorial board lives in some sort of scary, twisted alternate reality. If you were to come from another culture and read this editorial without knowing anything else about the United States you would think that we are a country where the poor pay more in taxes than the rich and the government barely has enough money to function. Oh, and perhaps most scarily, achieving great things requires ever increasing sums of tax revenue.
