The 'balanced approach'..... Brought to you by painstaking focus group testing.... Granted 'a balanced budget' actually tested better, but it should be obvious that the inclusion of the word 'balanced' granted them enough political flexibility that they wouldn't pay a steep price, politically, for what they proposed.... After all it is called 'balanced'.... LOL... Ultimately though the point is being missed. The fact is that America is trending in a direction of government dependency. The way out both politically and economically exists but I suspect these spineless Reps won't even consider it. NO INCREASE IN THE DEBT CEILING..... 'Government', then cannot be a reliable source for 'benefits' and the budget balances....
