It is so hard when the Party that controls the WH and the Senate won't even acknowledge that there is a spending problem to address. When Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Canada addressed their budget problems, there was at least agreement that there WAS a problem. It was thrust upon them by the IMF (GB, Canada) and the rating agencies. The work was tough, but the rewards were great. The Dems will not address the real issue until it is too late. This is so sad, like watching a train wreck in slo-mo.
