It is amazingly easy to balance the budget

Of course it is...but who says they want to?

the housing bubble and the Iraqi war have kept this economy alive..... the thing will dive....

cut number one? We allow the Federal govt to negotiate with the drug companies.....

cut number two? well not exactly......we dont allow for the time table of all of W's tax cuts to be "maintained"......

cut number three? well not exactly again....instead the dems reroute the money....this acts as a cut from the big company big oil's tax incentive program being half way axed......and acts like a stimulous like giving more to the needy.........

if the dems and prez do cut the deficit this year and going forward, then we can see a small recession followed by meaningful reductions in the over night rate.......
