To Quote Brad DeLong: So the WaPost is a Newspaper, After All
From the front page of today’s Washington Post:
$3 Trillion Price Tag Left Out As Bush Details His Agenda
The expansive agenda President Bush laid out at the Republican National Convention was missing a price tag, but administration figures show the total is likely to be well in excess of $3 trillion over a decade.
A staple of Bush’s stump speech is his claim that his Democratic challenger, John F. Kerry, has proposed $2 trillion in long-term spending, a figure the Massachusetts senator’s campaign calls exaggerated. But the cost of the new tax breaks and spending outlined by Bush at the GOP convention far eclipses that of the Kerry plan.
My only question is this: why haven’t Bush’s hypocrisies been of the front page of newspapers all year?
