    Full story:
    McCain promises to balance budget - Mike Allen - Politico.com

    At least he is talking about balancing the budget!!!!

    IMO the most important Issue of the Day. We can not continue to run deficits and grow our outrageous Debt anymore!!

    If he keeps talking like this I may have to rethink my vote, me thinks.

    He means to reform them!

    I suggest you read the whole link, and then go to McCains web site and read about his Goals to Cut pork barrel spending, and earmarks. As well as to use the money saved from the winding down of the war in Iraq, to begin reducing the Deficit, and eventually paying down the Debt.

    I sure do not like everything about McCain, but I like the Idea of someone talking about balancing the Budget. Our Debt is what is KILLING the DOLLAR and KILLING US.

    Do you hear Obama talking about this stuff? ending Deficit spending, and Balancing he budget is not going to be painless you know! Cuts must be made. Both in military and discretionary spending.

    LOL, are you kidding? A politician makes a promise, and you are falling for it that easily? How much of McCain's rhetoric over the years has matched his record?

    When was the last time a politician came through on SS, btw?

    I seriously don't see how anyone could confuse you with anything other than a partisan hack for McCain.

    Yes yes, this from a Liberal Democrat Partisan hack, with one are you, the pot or the kettle?

    Yes, I am partisan. I am partisan toward ending deficit spending, and balancing our budget, and I only see one guy talking about that.

    I'm a liberal, not a democrat. You should know better since you are apparently a conservative, and not a republican, according to you.

    You gobble up what mccain has spoon fed you. He'll get your vote, no doubt about that. You won't throw your vote away with barr. That much is clear. So I suggest you stop your front of being an individual. You spend hours everyday insulting Obama, instead of telling us why Barr or McCain would be good presidents. McCain's economic plan is about as hollow as Obama's Hope for Change campaign slogan.

    Find us one or more examples where McCain has shown to be ANY different economically than the bush admin! Then we'll talk about how you're not partisan.

    And this somehow shows that you didn't fall for Mccain's rhetoric?
