Obama and Romney on taming deficits

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Whoever wins the presidential election on Nov. 6 will be under pressure to tame federal deficits. And the subject, directly or indirectly, is likely to come up during Tuesday's town hall debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

Indeed, the candidates share a similar goal when it comes to the federal debt: They say they want to get it under control.

    In some of the rest areas–I have seen charging stations for ELECTRIC VEHICLES–all this while GOP thugs sold to Saudi for cheap oil. Yes, on OBAMA12. Period.

    Romney: 20% tax cut for job creators, trickle down magic, more military, problem solved sometime in the next fifty years. Also cut Big Bird.
    Obama: 1 trillion in tax revenues, 3 trillion in cuts, problem tamed in ten years, will need more to solve it
