    Might be if the figures added up.

    The sane and easy deficit reduction method would be to cut spending. I cant imagine why you think we should waste money we don't have. But seriously, there is no need to make this more complicated than it needs to be.

    Man, you are so damn retarded that you must be from Jersey, cutting spending is only one way of reducing deficit, but the retards from the right see it as the only ways, quite simply put, you must reduce what you spend plus bring in more money to offset a deficit. If a company has a 5 million dollar deficit and spending cuts will only take away about 1 million dollars of that deficit 4 million must still be accounted for by bringing in more money which means revenue must be increased and in the case of the government bringing in more revenue means raising taxes, it is inevitable that it must happen, no way of getting around it.

    Only a liberal nitwit would claim there is some absolute limit on spending cuts. As long as your spending above zero, you have spending you can cut. There's a difference between cuts that libtards don't want to make and an absolute limit on spending cuts. The later is purely a liberal delusion.

    Idiot, what is it about about basic math and common damn sense don't you understand? You axquire debt by not bringing in or enough revenue while spending what you don't have so the only way to reverse it is to cut what you spending and bring in more revenue, cutting alone will not do the job, especially when money needs to be spent.

    Only an idiot thinks spending cuts alone without raising taxes will fix the deficit.

    Deficits and first aid are two different things, bottom line spending cuts alone will not fix budgets, increass in revenue are needed.
