We have this deficit and debt because spending has been more than revenue for a long time. It doesn't matter how much taxes are raised if the spending keeps pace- the debt will continue to rise. Any serious budget plan will have to be fully locked in to cutting spending by a lot every fiscal year. It has to be done. And anyone that isn't willing to do it needs to stay out of Washington. There needs to be a balanced budget amendment passed and a trigger for spending cuts every single year until the debt is below a certain threshold. Washington needs to have discipline forced on it since it can not do it on its own.
How is it possible that apple juice made from 100% apples with no extra sugar added('cause, you know, fructose is a sugar found in most fruits) is poison? You need to make the distinction before you vilify every kind of juice.
I have to take a leak. Also, this electric drill I bought last week to work on a bust of Steve Jobs has an emergency recall on it from the manufacturer- shows symptoms of power failure. My target date for completion of the project- without help and delays- depends on how much time I spend on these social media sites; they sure are addictive... almost like narcotics. BTW, has anyone seen that remake of 3:10 to Yuma? I heard it's pretty good.
