- But where this tunnel vision is most disturbing is on the U.S. budget and economy. At a time when most of the rest of the world is wary of deficits and confiscatory tax rates, the Times’ opinion writers are often strident outliers.
It is telling that the NYT supports Obama's damaging overspending, when nearly all cities, counties, states, and other countries know that massive spending is absolutely the wrong thing to do, especially for a nation bankrupted by over $16,000,000,000,000 in debt and a credit rating reduced from AAA to AA. The reality is that the NYT is socialist/communist, same as the president. It's natural for them to support him. Both wish to exponentially increase the size, scope and power of government.
