Conservative pundit Naill Ferguson has written a column in this week's NEWSWEEK that claims "Obama Doesn't Deserve to be Re-elected". NY TIMES writer Paul Krugman says Ferguson's comments are "unethical". Who is right & who is "far right"?
Ferguson has claimed in his obviously biased article that the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) reported that the President's Affordable Care Act will "increase deficit spending" ... Paul Krugman says that NEWSWEEK editors "either don't know this claim is false, or else they don't do any fact-checking" ... The CBO has stated that the ACA will actually DECREASE deficit-spending, because the proposed insurance subsidies are already paid for ... The non-partisan Congressional Budget office has stated that, in fact, Obama's Affordable Care Act provisions are "deficit-neutral"! ... Ryan's Budget, (which Romney supports) would, on the other hand, hike the deficit by $4 TRILLION! ... NEWSWEEK is simply using the wingnut Ferguson's wingnut opinions to sell magazines!
