We adored Reagan, but debt increased, we followed Clinton, but the debt increased, we praised gwb for tax cuts, but debt increased, we followed the 0, but the debt increased. We can take this back to LBJ as see the same trends. The biggest concern about the size of the debt is that it can lead to hyper inflation, which would hurt everybody in the country. Show us a reasoned approach to the problem and lead the way, whoever leads the next administration.

Romney promises to improve things, even eliminating some. When Government reduces spending, someones check gets smaller! People have had this decision on their plate for decades and chose to change nothing. Change means pain!

Romney means someone loses something.

Obama means no change. He can borrow enough to avoid pain until he is gone!

People will give many reasons for voting for Obama but I just gave you the real reason. OBAMA IS THE KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN CANDIDATE;
Romney wants to borrow less and give away less free stuff!! People really won't make that sacrifice yet.

Well, oldervoter (and I am one) we are truly in a catch 22. You are most correct in all you say but everyone refuses to see it. Yes, it is true that under Clinton who had NO WAR, and who brags about the balanced budget, the National Debt actually increased $1.3 Trillion during both terms.

It goes without saying that if Romney wins and attempts to keep even a few of his reforms, he will be the most hated man since John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald! Just the act of raising the FICA 2% back to it's origional level will have them screaming how cruel he is!

Forty Percent of your daily bread is a hell of a lot to borrow! And, since we have not stopped borrowing for 80 years or more people really don't intend to!

In Wednesday's debate, Mitt Romney said he will "stop the subsidy" to public broadcasting. That's good to know, because Mitt Romney's campaign website says he will merely "reduce subsidies for ... the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."

Kill Big Bird or just pluck some of his feathers? Or neither, in keeping with what often happens to promises made by politicians? As Ted Kennedy once said of Romney's abortion policy, "I am pro-choice. My opponent is multiple choice."

Barack Obama had a tough time in the debate because he was told he would be debating Mitt Romney, a self-described "severely conservative"...
