    Something's not adding up here. I distinctly recall Barry saying he'd cut the deficit in half by the end of his one term in office.

    The only way to pay off this debt is to cut taxes!

    Taxes in this country have been cut for the last decade. And yet we still have a deficit. Gee...I wonder why that is?

    The only way to pay off debt is to borrow even more money!

    then maybe pay peopole, on borrowed money, to dig holes and fill them in. Since this creates jobs and then more consumer spending!
