That's what readers of Marc Thiessen's column on the sequester would conclude. Theissen repeatedly touts the report of the Bowles-Simpson commission. Of course there was no report issued by the commission because no report received the necessary majority. The Post's fact checkers would have quickly caught Thiessen's error and insist that he correct it, but such is the price of labor discord.

Thiessen's piece is also striking for the lack of concern for the people will lose their jobs as a result of slower growth that is resulting from his preferred policy. Presumably he does not imagine himself or his friends to be among the people who will lose jobs because of the policies he advocates.
