Hey Eat..."coming up with a balance budget ammendment" is nothing. It sounds good on paper, but like typical republican soundbites, it has almost no practical application. Balancing the budget at this point does not have the will of the people and the severe austerity that would be needed would bankrupt several states and tip us back into the Great Recession.
No very much of a retort "stop crying, you lost the election."
I don't think that is Billion's point...I think that the point is that no matter who is in office, they can't seem to control spending..the Repubs can't back up their fiscal discipline rhetoric...good at winning the last election...no substance to govern in a responsible manner. IMO.
It is going to be a rude wake up call if one day the bond markets have to tell us that our spending has gone to far.
