Cut - Cap - Balance would have been a great Idea before Bush started the Barrowing Binge for two unecessarry wars, an expensive unfunded medicare program and tax cuts for the richest among us. But I remember a guy Named Reagan and Cheney who stated that "deficits don't matter",
Why is it so hard for TBagger/Repubs to understand that since Bush started us off on this debt tragectory, that now is not the time and it is impossible/ unreasonable without new revenues to put in place Cut-Cap-Balance. These two groups should own what their ilk started, that they were mostly responsible for this out of balance economic trouble we are in and bite the revenue bullet to get us out of the mess they started. Once out of this mess will be the time for Cut-Cap-Balance
If we only cut now from programs that keep the lower income groups affloat the economy will just get more stagnant, There must be more income mixed in the fix and infrastructure spending in place of war spending to keep the economy moving, then the public will return to having some money for spending and orders will increase and businesses will start hiring, then the deficit will start going down.
