Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
We have more than enough people "addressing the cause of the debt" and it's always the political opponents. What isn't possible at the moment, it seems, is finding leadership capable of fixing the debt.and fix 30 years of debt created by too much spending on the military industrial complex while simultaneously cutting revenues, rather than taking the responsible fiscal response of addressing the cause of the debt.
Next time the American people go to the polls they should consider a candidate who has some experience in financial matters, not an unqualified poster boy designed to demonstrate how advanced a nation they have become.
Unfortunately our politicians, and in particular our Republican politicians, do not respond to obvious answers.

Again you smash the irony meter to pieces, as you spend virtually all your time here arguing about what would have happened if Obama hadn't done x, y, or z. :
Of course we can't know exactly what would have happened, but there is very little evidence that the Bush tax cuts spurred economic growth.

Employment January of each year. Looks to me like 9 million new taxpayers created between January 2003 and January 2008 all before Democrats took control of the Congress and Legislative process.
