    By simple math, this is true, the most direct way to erase a deficit. And it's unlikely that people will support it anytime soon.

    Get that blender ready.
    Couldn't this also be used to support the opposite claim--assuming that your family is thus generous--that they would give money to the needy with or without taxation directing it for them?

    But it is in total conflict with this so it puts the US in a precarious situation. At this point he can't have his cake and eat it to. Since the economy has gone from crisis to borderline catastrophe, I would think he would choose to focus on it right now. Put his agenda of health care and other items on a back burner until we stabilize our current mess.
