The Federal gov't simply needs to stop living beyond our means. Running a 10% budget deficit year in, year out is not a long term proposition. Reality is the Federal Gov't needs to shrink by about 15-20% to get into surplus and slowly pay off the federal debt over a couple of decades.
The German Gov't runs a massive surplus and pays down debt in good years to have a cushion in bad years. Why can't we do the same ?
