Well, you have a point, but it's phrased rather too broadly.
I find writing a line in a declarative language to often be
harder than in an imperative language. However, the per-line amount of work accomplished is a lot more, so it's unclear how the final accounting looks. Also, I have decades of practice in the imperative style, and very little in the declarative, and I think that's a common situation.
