    Living within our means? Is there seriously something so wrong about not spending more money than we take in?

    Income inequality helps explain our savings deficiency which will tie directly to our statist/corporatist policies.

    This is another good discussion that rw kooks can challenge me on.

    The difference between a Progressive Liberal and a Neocon is.... nothing. The goal of both parties is to grow Government and repeal nothing after you ran on repealing the other party’s evil expansions.
    That is why neither party will “live within its means.” How many Dems here though when Obama was elected that he would be 1 of the biggest war presidents in US history? How many Republicans thought Bush would be a war president?

    They both ran on anti war platforms.

    wut?

    Edit, NM it prolly means Republicans want people to die somehow and in that case I really don't care to hear it.

    Edit again... Republicans want "poor" or "colored" people to die.

    Nothing. Perfectly appropriate for individuals.

    But thatÂ’s not applicable to First World Industrialized governments, nor should it be.

    Please point out the people who are saying that they have anything against living within their means? Raising the Debt Ceiling is about paying the debts we have already incurred. Holding that hostage for the sake of FUTURE spending is what people are "against".

    Cutting social safety nets while ignoring the corporate tax breaks and loopholes is what people are "against". Decimating these programs while ADDING to our military budget is what people are "against".

    What people aren't "against" is a balanced approach that looks at cuts AND revenues.

    You know, liberals aren't in favor of big government, they favor GOOD government.

    When people say they are "against the government", it is important to point out that what they are really saying is that they are against "we the people" for that is what American government is comprised of.

    I don't have a problem living within my means. I also Pay my bills, and I don't take a pay cut when I know I have to make my car payment etc.
