    Congress is NOT the problem. A spendthrift fool of a President, is the problem!

    When political ideology becomes a political theology, that's a problem that retards the democratic process.

    The focus should be on JOBS. Putting people back to work is how you bring down the deficit. Closing loopholes on corporations hiding their money in the Caymans and other tax havens is how you bring down the deficit. Equal pay for women for equal work as is another key component. We are NOT going to cut our way to prosperity. Look how badly austerity is doing Europe.

    Uh, he's added far less new spending that Reagan and either Bush. In fact, he's on pace to be the president who added the least new spending. He certainly was during his first term. With taxes at the lowest rates in decades, I would say that there is still a revenue imbalance in the budget, yes. But, spending is not the exclusive problem.
