    Judging by the rate that our annual budget deficits are growing, nothing.

    health care reform is a start…the cbo says it will cut the debt.
    now we need to make the Gov’t programs be more efficient and cut waste.
    Obama will tackle that. We just had this economic crisis that he got handed, he had to address that first. One thing at a time.

    That’s the trouble with people these days…they want it all, NOW.
    No one cares to plan long range. That’s the problem.

    They’re borrowing billions of dollars.

    That’s what.

    Wait, that’s not it.

    They’re hiring more IRS agents and applying the Cloward Piven stragety simultaneously!

    Nothing. They are trying to pump money into the economy in an effort to repair the damage done by the last “conservative” Republican President.

    Well, liberal politicians who seem to think they are economic geniuses are telling us that it’s possible to spend money that we don’t have to get out of debt. My six year old knows that that doesn’t work.

    Nothing – the debt rises every day. It has been fueled by the health care bill, the stimulus bill, and much more. Who knows what will happen when the government has to default on this money. It could really turn out to be an economic catastrophe.

    To reduce it? I thought they was trying to add to it.

    If we keep borrowing, won’t that eventually wipe out the debt?
