I Balanced the Budget!

November 15th, 2010

I cut the 2030 deficit by $2 trillion!

Or by $1.4 trillion — balancing the budget — without resorting to death panels or touching the Medicare budget that Republicans are fighting so hard to preserve.

    I’m too tired to do the math. What was your cut to revenue ratio?

    Alice Rivlin and old New mexico Senator Pete Deminici were on PBS today (NOV. 17) talking about the deficit with Judy Woodruff. I thought they made some super good points. I even found Pete Deminici somewhat likable in the interview, and I usually find him very annoying, You should try to download that segment of PBS NewsHour on the i-Tunes if you can. It is worth watching.

    Steve, YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS!!! (Wednesday Nov. 17) download on i-Tunes
