I'll repeat again for you. Just because YOU want to limit the discussion to one topic, it doesn't mean everyone will follow your lead.
Part of the deficit talk was of wasteful spending. When others are talking about $84 that DOD pays for a $4 hammer, they're not talking deficit. They're talking wasteful spending. They're not talking savings accounts, treasury notes or deficit reduction. They talking about the government ******* away money and, as toddcomm noted, he'd rather spend that $80, hell maybe he buys pot with it, and get $80 worth of goods than the government pay 20x the value of a particular good.
