I did not say the first part of the quote attributed to me in this article. I did say the second part, about the plan not being balanced.
I did not say that the President got rolled.
Apparently, the author, Stephen Moore, conflated the comments of a “senior Senate Democratic aide” and me. See end of this WaPo piece.
This is especially annoying and ironic since I’ve been trying to add some nuanced analysis of the President’s position in all of this.
I’ve asked for an immediate correction but please let the editors at the WSJ know that this is unacceptably sloppy journalism.
