    That's the problem with this debate.  We keep getting drawn into solving a non-existent problem.

    Repeat after me: The deficit is not a problem.  Nor will it will a problem unless we get stupid and cripple our economy for another couple of decades.  The prove that it isn't a problem is zero interest rates and tame inflation.

    Bottom line - cancel the fucking sequester.  That's all that needs to be done.  We don't need a fucking "grand bargain" that just trades off benefits for people who can't afford the cuts.  That's just playing one group of people against another.  It's a stupid losing game.
