In the debate over avoiding the “fiscal cliff,” an important point has been forgotten: when it comes to solving our debt, government spending is the problem that must be addressed. http://www.speaker.gov/general/spendingistheproblem-chasing-higher-spending-higher-taxes-won-t-solve-our-debt

- Your a fool. You don't understand.... We don't have any money. What does it take to get that through your thick skull.Jan 6, 2013
- but when you say we have no money, that's a two-pronged problem. Just as an example, if you're making minimum wage, and you're making less than your rent costs per month, you have to both figure out how to make more money and try to reduce your expenses. But you can't just stop paying rent because you don't have enough money to pay it. That makes you homeless.Jan 6, 2013
- Why is this not explained to US All like Ross Perot once tried?Jan 6, 2013
- Because it isn't reasonable and it is too simplistic. Lastly, no one can draw a line in the sand and say 'this is too much'. The US economy is not a family of four. Spending my be a problem but it is not a problem now because our credit rating is too high and there is a market for our paper.
If the Conservatives push us into default, it will suddenly be a real problem and a problem that will turn into crises. One last main problem with that chart, the revenue level is a HUGE assumption and one that is false as the US economy is much more flexible than that of Greece, Spain and Italy. California alone is larger than each of those economies.Jan 6, 2013
