Here’s That Bloomberg Businessweek Cover Everyone Is Talking About
Now that Newsweek is no more, where are we supposed to go for controversial (or — at the very least — thought-provoking) magazine covers?
However, although many will probably agree with the magazine’s message, Business Insider’s Joe Wiesenthal takes umbrage with its depiction of Congress as a bunch of crying babies.
“[I]t’s inaccurate to depict the Congress as being all babies,” he writes. “A lot of Congressmen on both sides of the aisle are adults trying to make deals, and look out for the interests of their constituents.”
“That being said, there is a pretty sizable faction of Fiscal Fanatics that thinks it’s beneficial to go to the edge of a government shutdown/default. And they think that unless they get 100% of want they want, then they’ve done a complete sellout. Baby mentality. After all, the Fiscal Cliff deal preserved the Bush tax cuts for virtually all Americans, and yet most of the GOP in the House couldn’t vote for it,” he adds.
He points to what, he says, is the real issue.
“A number of folks in the media seem to get that there’s something reckless about the Default Caucus of the GOP, but since they strive so hard for balance, they have to attack Obama for something too, and so they usually point to his lack of spending cuts,” he writes.
“The truth of the matter is that Obama has done more than the GOP in terms of trying to come to grips with entitlement spending,” he adds. “Most Congressmen aren’t babies. Some are. In 2013, let’s get rid of the ‘pox on both their houses’ way of looking at things.”
