swamp, c'mon. You bring discredit to your position when you argugue coherently about some things, but cannot give credit where credit is due. I disagree with just about everything the current president holds as important (not based on his rhetoric, but his action, or lack thereof). That aside, one of the very few items that I have no problem with, and no one in their right mind should, is the fact that the President doesn't want "red tape" to be an obstacle with respect to helping the storm victims. He deserves credit for that. Are there motives for why he says it? Maybe, but we really ought to accept those words at face value.
And seamar, deficit spending in perpetuity is a collosal waste and immoral to saddle other people with. It's real money and its real debt. And it is being passed on to generations. When the notes become due, they have to be paid. Just because we have survived with it so far doesn't mean we can continue forever with it. Finances simply don't work that way.
