There are many moving parts that impact upon the federal debt and deficit problems. With low-information voters making the difference in elections, it is essential to find a focused, simple message that can be easily explained to these people by inarticulate Republicans. As it is now, a Republican will mention spending and get a be specific. Mention tax reform and the discussion turns to benefiting the rich. Talk about growth and you get a stimulus. How is someone who barely pays attention to figure it out?

The problem before America, and it is denied by Democrats, is the debt and deficit problem, which is the result of having NO budget that comes into balance. Even low-information voters understand will understand this. Democrats will be able to muddy the waters on this point, but if Republicans continue to insist on a budget that comes into balance they can, and should, win this argument.
They don't need to worry about spending problems, or balanced approaches, or fiscal cliffs. Insist only upon a budget that comes into balance -- the math will take care of the rest.
Who wants a fantastic job? Unemployment is high, so there ought to be many candidates. The job is leader of the Republican Party.

As leader, you will be the spokesman for a philosophy of smaller government, more individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, free markets and budget cuts. You will speak up for the traditional family and strong community organizations.

On one hand, you stand for keeping taxes low on the very richest Americans. On the other, you're for cutting programs that are broadly popular. Congratulations. What are you for that Americans support? That's what is so great about this job....
