What is the Republican solution to get us out of debt?
I know you guys want the tax cuts to remain permanent, so what is the solution to get us out of our trillions of dollars of debt while making the tax cuts to Americans permanent and spending 150 billion dollars a year on wars?

They have no solution. No republican has ever reduced the National Debt. Bush, Bush, and Reagan created 70% of the National Debt. Look at the chart below.

they will cut your social security, increase taxes on middle class people, reduce aid to poor people and increase inflation so everyone has to work until they are 90.

Pass it on to future generations. We'll be dead then, so who cares? They can curse us in our graves for what we did to them.

tax the rich democrats. they want to pay their fair share anyway, they can cover the deadbeats on welfare they are always having parades for in Washington, and they can cover the illegal aaliens that work on their lawns in hollywood.

the very first answer made me laugh. yeah there really isn't a republican solution. it's bad to be on either side, republican or democrat. why should you settle for one group?

Well, with the tax cuts we've had be highest revenue than every from income tax, so cutting taxes works. And the debt is shrinking. http://www.truewordtoday.blogspot.com/

Their solution is to not bother getting out of debt. Ah... remember when being a Republican used to mean smaller government and fiscal responsibility? Those were the good ol' days.

There isn't one unless you consider the current Bush/Cheney plan of bankrupting the middle class a solution to it.

Are you kidding? No plans past February as of now. They knew what they were doing, they knew they had 8 years to do it, and they are leaving it all to the next president to deal with. No plan.

One idea would be to drug test welfare recipients, if they fail, not welfare!!!

I would offer you the fact that the last time the budget was balanced was under a Republican, Dwight D Eisenhower. Also if you find the time to compare national debt with the party in the white house you will find they have nothing to do with it. Congress (Democratic for the majority of the last 50 years) are the ones... More

They probably don't plan on ever paying it back. When China comes to collect they are going to tell China "tough, try and make us pay it back if you want a WWIV!"

I agree w/ Mr. Taco - I feel they are totally disregarding the debt. The out of control spending of this administration has gone unchecked for 4 years. I understand the significance of defense spending - but what about responsible spending & accountability.

First of all, the National Debt isn't a major issue. In fact, no country would force the US to pay off its debt because in one way or another, we have helped them (like europe) or they're afraid that the US would cut off all trade with them (China... More

Let me walk you through this: Raising taxes (or letting the current cuts expire--they are both the same thing) will result in the economy slowing down, possibly even going into a recession. End result: less money to the Treasury. The tax cuts that have been implemented have resulted in a robust economy, which has... More

Isn't it a bit ridiculous that Liberals never mention the $5.5 Trillion debt under Clinton in 1998, and instead point out a surplus when referring to the deficit? Face it, the national debt has been growing since 1791, and no politician will ever pay it down. Neither party has ever done anything about it. I wish this... More
