GOOSE vs. GANDER….Sam Rosenfeld is upset that the Washington Post described recent Republican budget cuts with a headline that says, “Senate Passes Plan to Cut $35 Billion From Deficit.” After all, the budget legislation has been split in half and the second half includes a $70 billion tax cut, which means that the overall package actually increases the deficit by $35 billion.

Sam’s point is well taken, but I think the Post can make amends for this pretty easily. When the second half of the budget bill is passed, all they have to do is give it the following headline: “Senate Passes Plan to Add $70 Billion To Deficit.”

Do you think they will?
