Why worry about the deficit? Why not just apply some more 'supply-side' theory as the Republicans did during the entire George W. Bush 'Reign of Error?'
Let's not forget the four pillars of supply-side theory.
1.) Tax cuts increase revenue.
2.) Deficits do not matter.
3.) The more debt there is, the more opportunities there are for tax cuts in the future.
4.) Every program that the federal government creates or expands presents yet another opportunity for a tax cut.
I suggest people read Alan Greenspan's book 'Age of Turbulence' where he says that in 2001 the USA had 'budget surpluses as far as the eye can see.'
