    Being fiscally responsible as far as the federal government is concerned does not mean to me that it's like balancing my checkbook.  What it means to me is making responsible decisions to maintain a sound economy in this country.  If I thought that, I wouldn't have added the fact that the government has the right to raise the debt ceiling -- that's part of being fiscally responsible dork.

    Furthermore, I do not agree that Democrats think that being fiscal responsible = balancing the budget.  I think that some agree that reducing our deficit is being responsible.  However I also believe that it should not be done in a way that damages our economy.

      Do you think the economy is "sound"? Yes or no.

      If you do not think it is "sound", what do you think is required to make it so a) balancing the budget, b) reducing the deficit, or c) increasing the deficit?
