    Can it change?  The assumption is that people actually want to fix the debt situation.  They don't.

    Tea Partiers only want less taxes.  They say they are focused on debt, but then reveal their lack of seriousness on that issue by calling for tax cuts which prevents progress on debt reduction.

    More sane but also more greedy Republicans also only want tax cuts.  They don't see social services cuts as affecting them.  Who cares if some poor bum goes hungry?  It's his own fault for being lazy.  I want to live in my McMansion and buy another car with my tax cut.  Oh, and make it happen, or else I'll give money to the other guy running for office.

    Democrats at least are on the right track, but whether through fortunate coincidence that their preference (more spending in a recession) is a good idea or just because they are always for more spending...well, that remains to be seen.
