    LOL. I'd like to met the SOB that convinced you of that. He's one of the best liars on earth. Right up there with members of the Obama administration.

    Just about any economist will tell you the same. Just because you think you are smarter than them does not mean you are correct by any means. The only liars I know of are the ones that said austerity will bring jobs through "confidence", no matter how many times history and facts prove them wrong.

    Let's see, we have 17 trillion in debt and today approximately 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers. Is that the kind of investment in the future you are talking about? Keep buying the liberal spin

    What kind of future do you and he envision?
    Not what you want that's for sure. We believe in America.

    And to counter the obvious: On Jan. 7, 2009, two weeks before Obama took office, the Congressional Budget Office reported that the deficit for fiscal year 2009 was projected to be $1.2 trillion.
    Which doesn't mean squat in a discussion about debt. Only where there is an actual surplus that can be applied to the debt does the deficit discussion mean anything positive in this regard. That we have a deficit at all means we're still planning on spending money we don't have, and that means borrowing more and increasing the debt.

    No, it means you believe in taking now for yourselves and have faith those that come after won't curse your name when they get stuck with the pain.

    Now we are getting somewhere. What kind of investments would you recommend? I favor infrastructure repair and mass transit upgrades.

    Infrastructure repair is a routine cost. That we haven't been doing that all along as a portion of the budget is part of the problem. And mass transit is not an investment but a liability. It's highly subsidized.
