The DEFICIT, the amount we spend versus what we take in , is going DOWN...which means we are living within our means WHILE the slimdown is in effect. We're not spending more than we're taking in.

No. As long as their IS a deficit, we are spending more than we are taking in.

The debt is the accumulation, the deficit is the spending less revenue. We are not digging as fast as we were, but we are still digging our hole.

Yah ya but again the POINT is that the deficit is going down and hardly anyone is being affected.

This is why dems are screaming like stuck pigs. They HAVE to make noise because eventually people will wake up and realize...hey...is the government still shutdown? I didn't even notice.
