  •  Until both parties come up with a plan.. (4+ / 0-)

    .. that makes the deficit zero percent of any comparison (i.e. balanced budget), well before 2015; we're all just arguing about whose plan will be in place when the DEBT reaches 100% of GDP, and it all caves in.

    The only, partisan debate that matters, is how do we get to a zero deficit.

    •  Unfortunately (0+ / 0-)

      repealing the Reagan tax cuts isn't under serious consideration by either party.  

      That, and a health care reform that actually controls costs, are the only way we'll ever balance the budget.

      The question is not whether the chickens needed replacing, the question is whether the fox should have been guarding them in the first place.
