There are three ways to deal with a deficit:

1) reduce spending
2) increase revenues
3) both


This type of thinking in some ways.....is static.....

there is a forth way to lower the deficits longer term.....

economic growth.....through....

lowering taxes on the middle classes or on work done.....

a small raising of taxes on the wealthy.....back to the Clinton days....

and with economic growth welfare spending of all stripes would decline.....

This approach is more than simply a one year plan.....
