The debt deal puts all the weight on the middle class and does not solve anything. It cuts* about 2 trillion in 10 years but the government will still have to borrow about 8 trillion during the same time.
We can not have a genuine reduction of the debt without implementing the two main ingredients: Taxes and cuts.
And at this moment, it is the economy and jobs that should be a priority; not the deficit.
* Some of the cuts are not real cuts in today’s expenditures but theoretical reductions in projected future spending.
