But even that is really a specious move on the part of the Administration. It's like you or me maxxing out our credit cards and then telling our wives it's time to quit buying on credit.
Certainly, reducing spending is EXACTLY what the Administration and Congress need to do. But on the same token, they shouldn't be hailed as heroes for being prudent with Taxpayer money after $4 trillion of binge spending. I'm still trying to figure out exactly HOW this President thinks he can reduce the Debt when prior to him taking Office we were already spending 25% of the annual Federal Budget just paying the interest on that Debt.
