More journalism 101 for the Washington Post. It told readers in a front page story that tax increases on the wealthy

"are considered 'job-killing' and off-limits by many Republicans."

Of course Republicans call tax increases job killers, but politicians often say things that they do not believe to be true. Many members of Congress are old enough to remember the 90s when the economy created 3 million jobs a year even though the higher Clinton era tax rates were in effect.

The Post should restrain itself to telling readers what politicians say and do; it does not know what they actually think.
