  1. The GOP’s goal should not be to push a balanced budget per se, but rather to push an economic program that most Americans will feel makes them better off.

    Right now, most Americans don’t see a connection between their own finances/job security and a balanced budget/reduced spending/etc. Until they do, the GOP economic plan is going nowhere.

    You are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic with your wonkish rationalizations. We are borrowning and printing money at surrealistic rates and something has to -and will- give. We should have the character and will to do what any rational, patriotic person should be able to readily perceive and stop spending money we don’t have, debauching our currency and imperiling our nation’s future.
