In it the ABC News reporter challenges the Senator with the prospect of cutting the over $1T annual flow of balances that currently make up the deficit, and the Senator indicates that he is ready to vote to seek those types of spending cuts "for our future grandchildren"; and literally falls prey to the deception of inter-generational accounting. (Hey Senator, can I use your time machine some weekend! LOL!)
This "Tea Party" Senator is either a moron or just grossly misinformed about economics to the point of what should be criminal negligence. (Probably the latter.)
If these people succeed in their current goals to destroy another 10% or so of our economy by implementing these levels of cuts when we reach the limit of the current authorized debt ceiling, it may be that we have another 4 months or so to enjoy the American way of life.
