    So for you to
    1- know this reality about who interprets the Constitution
    2- know that not a single Court decision in 220 years agrees with you
    3- cling to this ridiculous interpretation in despite of those two facts

    shows that their is some fantasy world of the USA that you seem to believe exists that has nothing at all to do with the real one the rest of us inhabit.

    Please show that is the precisely the programs you object to and not the ones you do not object to that cause or require the deficit.

    no hay, sorry again ...you wanted to know the constitution, becuase you stated...i needed to read it.......so you referring to the constitution.

    now you wish to switch over to the court, and that is not what you stated in your beginning arguments.

    your inconsistency is very troubling.

    And how do we know what the Constitution actually means? THE SUPREME COURT interprets it for us. Not you.

    It is the Supreme Court who interprets the US Constitution. They have been doing so for over 220 years. And not a single Court decision agrees with your far right extremist interpretation of what the powers of Congress are or what the scope of the Federal Government is regarding the American people.

    So, all other things being equal, if we eliminate these programs the deficit goes down. If we reintroduce them, the deficit goes up.

    If we eliminate all other spending the same thing is also true. So what? Why are you singling out these particular programs and not the other programs and coming to the same conclusion?

    Because I consider robbing Peter to pay Paul to be completely unethical.

    Unethical and VERY expensive.
