Contrary to the charges made by some of its opponents, the provisions of the new deficit-reduction law for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget are justified. Opponents should remember that the New Deal pulled this country out of great economic troubles even though some of its programs were later found to be unconstitutional.
2. The author’s method of attacking the charges of certain opponents of the new deficit-reduction law is to
(A) attack the character of the opponents rather than their claim
(B) imply an analogy between the law and some New Deal programs
(C) point out that the opponents’ claims imply a dilemma
(D) show that the opponents’ reasoning leads to an absurd conclusion
(E) show that the New Deal also called for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget

I think B is the answer. The author is trying to say that even though the New Deal program (probably New Deal Program is similar to the deficit reduction laws) is unconstitutional, it pulled the country out of trouble. So he is attacking the opponents claim (their claim probably must have been that the deficit reduction law is unconstitutional) by drawing an analogy. What is the OA???
