12. I have two good answers for those same deficits

Tax cuts and increased spending. That's it and that's what we're dealing with.

I realize you were absent the day they discussed economics in your college career, but it's pretty simple.

Everyone, whether it's a five-year-old kid who gets a quarter a week as his allowance or a government that receives billions in tax revenues, receives money and spends money.

If you receive money faster than you spend it, your supply of money gets bigger.

If you spend it faster than you receive it, your supply of money gets smaller.

Anyone who tells you that you can receive less money than you did last year, spend more than you did last year, and not get into trouble needs to have an act of senseless violence inflicted upon his empty head. Preferably with a large blunt object. But...that's exactly what the Republicans do.
