Let's Play the Unnamed Sources Game!

The Washington Post wrote in a recent story about the debt deal that "critics in China and elsewhere" have "complained that the last-minute agreement will not tackle the dangers that national health and retirement programs pose to the government’s long-term fiscal health." Dean Baker over at Beat the Press asks the important question: Who are these critics? And to that we add: Where exactly is "elsewhere"? Middle Earth? Tatooine? Well, we can play this game, too. Critics in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere disagree, stating Social Security does not now nor will it in the future contribute to the deficit.
