That's the problem Chief Bones, Economics at that level is far far removed from what you learn in 101.
Although I don't like it, the situation isn't that bad.
What IS bad is the systems of medicare, medicaid, social security, perscription drug bennefits etc. that have the very real potential to be the rock around tied to the ankled of an economy thrown to the fishes. I am very worried about the possibility that THAT kind of deficit spending is going to make you laugh about being worried about these "little pennies" in comparison, if you can imagine what a cluster F**** that is going to be!
