    I think you should watch some South Park for enlightenment:

    1. Spend more money.
    2.
    3. No deficit!

    Yep, just keep printing money and devaluing the dollar. I should have invested in currency printing presses years back.

    I guess the same way you create millions of jobs while unemployment increases.

    The same way you increase tax revenues by cutting taxes.

    1. By raising taxes
    2. By growing the economy.

    Spending goes up almost every year, and has done so for a century. During that time, we've had deficits, surpluses and balanced budgets.
