The obsession with deficit reduction is wrongheaded and ill-informed.
Mahilena Dianz's insight:

Deficit-worriers portray a future in which we’re impoverished by the need to pay back money we’ve been borrowing. They see America as being like a family that took out too large a mortgage, and will have a hard time making the monthly payments.

This is, however, a really bad analogy in at least two ways.

First, families have to pay back their debt. Governments don’t — all they need to do is ensure that debt grows more slowly than their tax base. The debt from World War II was never repaid; it just became increasingly irrelevant as the U.S. economy grew, and with it the income subject to taxation.

Second — and this is the point almost nobody seems to get — an over-borrowed family owes money to someone else; U.S. debt is, to a large extent, money we owe to ourselves.

Its about time that we take care of our own! On Nov 6 2012 Americans rejected the Conservative "Fend For Yourself" religion. In a Monetarily Sovereign Nation there is no need for a balanced budget. Actually Government does not need revenue to spend, it can collect it later as a way to give value to the currency it creates. Spending > Revenue expands the economy, Spending < Revenue contracts the economy, Spending = Revenue is irrelevant and unnecessary. Fiscal Monetary reform is an important agenda for ethical, economic, and political reasons and to undo the privatized franchise by which our economy has been based upon a debt based currency. The deficit terrorism by Fiscal Conservatives threatening austerity and even deeper privatization is based upon the Gold Standard model when dollar was backed by gold and limited, thanks to Nixon, this is no longer the case since 1971, and is thereby false, fraudulent and clearly a fear tactic based upon disinformation. When we align the nature of our economics and the capacities of modern money with the policies of governance as a socializing agenda significant changes will be possible. Based on understanding how sovereign fiat money actually is used can impact Fiscal Policy allowing the Federal government to extend funding for the construction of roads, mass transit, bridges and other "hard" infrastructure to put people back to work which would increase demand for products. This same process can be applied to social infrastructure such as national health care, education, and pensions. Further, an employer of last resort (ELR) process could be established, whereby individuals who wanted to work could be provided a living wage for advancing any number of needed projects toward building communities. Modern Monetary Theory > MMT AND A GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE | <a href="http://sco.lt/8zdEO1" rel="nofollow">http://sco.lt/8zdEO1</a>; government is not a wealth taker. It is a wealth maker. What’s more, the wealth it makes is not just its own. Generally speaking, people create much more wealth with the aid of government than they do without it. We don’t first become rich and then decide to form a government. First we form governments.  Then and only then can we become rich. Without a strong government that works for all, it is not possible to have a strong economy that works for all. They go together. This important insight is actually inscribed in the preamble of the US Constitution, where “to promote the general welfare” is listed as one of the principal purposes of our federal government, along with establishing justice, insuring domestic tranquility, defending the nation and securing the blessings of liberty."

115th Congress - 2nd Confederate Congress of the 21st Century after 114th

Anyways, here is the current Conservative- Libertarian, TEAPARTY CONFEDERATE view..on what the US Constitution should be as they claim in this article Articles of Confederation was preferable http://batr.org/view/122602.html

"We continually hear about restoring the meaning, intent and spirit of the Constitution. Few know that we had a far preferable blueprint for a federation before the 1789 U.S. Constitution. It was called the Articles of Confederation. Have you ever read it? If not you should. At the outset it’s opening declaration has - Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union Between the States. Some may want to misconstrue that perpetual means subordinate. In Article II, the basis for union is stated with total clarity - Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom and independence, and every power, jurisdiction and right which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States in Congress assembled.

Concern for national defense, diplomacy and treaties, assumption of war debt, extradition to state courts, unencumbered travel and commerce, coinage and adjudicator of disputes between states are subjects of mention. Prohibitions on specific areas for states are listed, while the few sections of administration by "a Committee of the States" are noted.

No doubt the U.S. Constitution, added valuable protections against a tyrannical central government in the Bill of Rights. But, the nature of the expanded roles for the executive and judicial branches in that same - U.S. Constitution - elevating them to a theoretical and dubious co-equal status, created the inevitable usurpation of the legitimate power of the independent states. We all know the tragic history of the unimpeded executive despotism in America. Far fewer understand the catastrophic precedent in the decision of Chief Justice John Marshall in Marbury vs Madison - placing the Supreme Court as the arbiter of the constitutionality of congressional legislation. The mere restoration to the constraints in the 1789 U.S. Constitution will not revive the Republic from its demise into an absolutist oppressor. Only a systemic dismantling of that central government, returning primacy back to individual states will restore the vision of the American Revolution." SARTRE - December 26, 2002 http://batr.org/view/122602.html
