The President, having just signed the "Pay As You Go" law, discusses the importance of this fundamental rule to getting budget deficits in check. Ensuring that new spending and tax cuts are offset was a important factor in creating the budget surplus of the late 1990’s.
This may be too early for this... with the recovery still shaky.. but this is a good thing. I don't know enough about economics to really know.
By doing this, maybe people will start to see this president is serious about cutting the deficit and not just talking about it. The Rethugs are all about talking and not doing. They have talked about how they wanted this done, but when it came time to vote... everyone of them voted AGAINST this bill.
We need to point this out over and over. They have NO, NONE, ZERO credibility when it comes to fiscal responsibility, just as they have NO, NONE, ZERO credibility when it comes to security of the country. And the more we point this out, the more we win on these subjects.
This is one way we can help our President and Congress get re-elected, and this is just a small way. Show everyone the ways this President and the Democratic members of Congress are working for US and our future, and that the Rethugs are doing nothing but talking.
Any other ideas you have?
