    I dont give a flying turtles rear end about the deficit, I do give a shit about increasing demand thru job creation.

      but I agree with Krugman who notes that NOW we should not focus on the deficit as you say -- but it is an issue that need attention in the future. The problem with increasing the deficit is the interest costs. In our present Federal budget, interest consumes 9% of the budget. At the very least we should attempt to be deficit-neutral, so  it does not impact too greatly in the next generation.

      As for now, I do agree that spending is the better way to grow job-creation.
