    The deficits are only there in the first place because of Republican tax cuts.

    That being said, macroeconomics seem to me to be at best a vague indicator of how much is being produced and consumed. Money is an idea, a fiction; we made it up. To say that real seniors must go without medical care or even money and shelter because the macroeconomic numbers don't align at the moment is monstrous. I'd prefer long-term deficits to austerity. The consequences of long-term deficits have never really seemed to materialize; the consequences of austerity certainly have.
