Let's Be Clear About Deficits

Let's be clear.
If you are a politician who says that you don't like deficit spending but you ...
1. don't know specifically what spending you would cut or taxes you would raise to eliminate the deficit,
2. are not actively working to create consensus on those specific changes (or some reasonable variation on those) within Congress ...

then you are not against deficit spending, you just wish that math didn't work the way it does.
