Deficits do matter because deficits lead to debt--like 17 trillion in debt.<quoted text> So sorry. Seeing how I have worked all my adult life and never had any government assistance, you must be talking to one of those hypothetical poor people you hate so much. I'm sure, when it comes time for you to be on social security, you'll walk it like you talk it and turn down that government teat like a true Conservative...right? You know...a true Conservative, like none of our past 5 Republican presidents who you gleefully voted for.
"Reagan," Vice President Dick Cheney famously declared in 2002, "proved deficits don't matter."
Oh my. How Conservative. No wonder you guys are always trying to rewrite history. Save your tea bagger emailed propaganda sales pitch for the bleary eyed flock.
Now the Republicans wrote a budget that reduces our deficit, but not nearly enough in my opinion. Why didn't they just eliminate the deficits? Because they are working with a Democrat Senate and President. Now we have the conservatives unhappy about the budget and I'm right with them.
It's too bad most Americans don't tune into Fox News. If they did, they would then understand why the government shuts down and the Republicans could really write a great budget for the next two years.
