There is a simple way out of this fiscal crisis:
President Obama announces to the world that there is only one China.
The Chinese would pay TRILLIONS to hear that!
FactCheck.org: During the Clinton administration was the federal budget balanced? Was the federal deficit erased?there was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. So any way you count it, the federal budget was balanced and the deficit was erased, if only for a while.
Ever have to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Scales in the grass but the scales don't move right?
Some people already figured that one out.
They wrote a Constitution for the United States to define the necessary spending.
No social entitlement or welfare program is allowed by the Constitution, nor is any federal spending for education, broadcasting, agriculture or industry subsidies, etc.
22 years does count as "decades".
