That's how it is suppose to be. It only runs during bad recessions. Part of our deficits and debt relates to the ugly fact that Bush ran Kenysian policies for 7 straight years. It was never meant to do that.I've never been an advocate of implementing such a financial strategy except during a recession or depression where the private sector could not fix itself because too much wealth within financial markets has been lost. But once the economy stabalizes (and the best economic indicator of that is an unemployment rate between 3.5 - 6%), then you can switch gears and return to balanced budget practices that combine spending reductions, program elimination, some revenue raisers and targetted tax cuts, if necessary. But I digress
Then again he could have been pandering to get donations. Mitt has flipped so many times that I cannot reasonably but any faith in any words he says. Mitt will say anything to anyone if he thinks it will further his presidency ambitions. I can't say if Mitt actually believed his 47% comments or if he's just saying that because the big wig donors want to hear it.IMO, the real Mitt Romney spoke his mind in May 2012 when he thought no cameras were recording his every word.
