Why do the liberals insist on more deficit spending when the nation is BROKE?


Why do the liberals REFUSE to understand that the deficit spending MUST be stopped or the nation will become premanently bankrupt?

    Fiat money is worth whatever values you judge it to have when you negotiate prices with other parties in exchanges of goods and services. Values of units are not uniform over different goods and services. Money has no intrinsic value.

    Many liberals are intellectuals and not bleeding hearts. They analyze problems and seek solutions. The Constitution says that the government was founded to promote the general welfare. That does not mean practical solutions are always mindless.

    I regret seeing comments like this that think in terms of oversimplified categories: liberals vs. conservatives, thinking with the heart. The issues are far more complex than that.

    Where did your money come from? It came from the government. Government first has to create and spend money for you to have it and use it and pay your taxes with it. So you are just a user not the owner of the money. We are not like Greece!

    There are Keynesians, neo-Keynesians, neo-classical conceptions of Keynes, etc., most of which are not what Keynes really believed.

    Debt is not a problem: it is either rolled over at the Treasury or completely redeemed by the Fed--all going on now.

    This comment was amazing.And I quote,"Fighting and refusing to yield any point, instead of taking turns or negotiating or drawing straws (voting), is NOT the sensible solution.Negotiation and a reality check IS the solution."

    History teaches nothing.

    Well if the Pres is so great, why hasn't he followed through on any promises, except programs that dig us deeper? IE the so called Affordable health care act?

    It's scary to think that people still believe in this guy.

    There will always be a huge number of folks who work the system. This has been going on since the time or the Romans. Look at what Greece has gone through. The only answer for a Greek is fiscal collapse, the start over. It is always the answer.

    It works, just not fast enough for all of those who would rather complain.

    We are not borrowing from China to get money to run our federal govt.

    They are investing their dollars from selling us imports in securities at the Fed, which are like CD's at banks. Their money is held in time deposits to be returned at maturity.
