Our debt will always grow. But when Washington wants to raise our borrowing capabilities by 10 million and they only end up raising it to 7 million (just an example) that still counts for something! To complain that it isn;t enough or isn't a cut is childish.
We may be able to reduce costs, but costs are always going to be there and if anyone thinks there will come a time when expenditures equal gains, especially without serious tax reform and raises, they are wrong now and will be wrong then.
