Bernie Sanders summed it all up, succinctly and to the point, "This Country does in fact have a serious deficit problem. But the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars—upaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. It was caused by a recession as result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street.
And if those are the causes of the deficit, I will be damned if we’re going to balance the budget on backs of the elderly, the sick, the children and the poor. That’s wrong." Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senate Budget Committee, 11-18-2011.
"Nuff said." Ed.
