Kevin Drum had an excellent summary of what to focus on regarding our real fiscal problems:
So: focus on domestic energy production, especially renewable resources. Rein in the trade deficit. And focus like a laser on reining in healthcare spending.
Truly the right things to be working on for our country's future. Too bad there are people who want to destroy the clean energy targets and to make healthcare unreachable for most Americans. Oh, the glories of having the greatest government money can buy.
