  •  We won't (0+ / 0-)

    There is a low probability we are going to do anything of the kind.

    I think there is a much higher probability of us spending ourselves into a crisis, and one that we can't solve by making a deal with the Republicans.

    Republicans have "trickle down economics". Democrats have "Keynesian economics". Both are fairy tales told by their respective political groups because it's what they want to hear.  There is no such thing as a free lunch.

    In reality, I think the problem will eventually be solved (or not) by a series of painful cuts and/or tax increases, both of which mainly affecting the middle class. I think there is no way it can be otherwise. Or we end up like Japan, in desperate straits with a debt of 250% of GDP and a lot of useless "stimulative" public works projects.
