"if YOU have a strategy for reducing the deficit i would love to hear it. if you dont, then why are you complaining about someone else's?"
If he had one it might be better than the one he states. From the horses mouth. Pay attention.
"WASHINGTON - Barack Obama says John McCain's plan to balance the budget doesn't add up. Easy for him to say: It's not a goal he's even trying to reach.
Not only does Obama say he won't eliminate the deficit in his first term, as McCain aims to do, he frankly says he's not sure he'd bring it down at all in four years, considering his own spending plans."
"I do not make a promise that we can reduce it by 2013 because I think it is important for us to make some critical investments right now in America's families," Obama told reporters this week when asked if he'd match McCain's pledge."
I started this thread about Obama raising taxes. You brought up the deficit.
Now that you know the raising of taxes aren't going to lower the deficit according to Obama, tell us now why you want to have the taxes raised.
