Is the deficit as big as we think it is? Are the politicians in Washington blowing it out of proportion? Today, in America we have a President who loves to spend. In fact he has not vetoed a bill since he has gotten in the White House. My question is, doesn't America have enough fixed assets and capital that will cover the deficit? For example, all of our natural resources or the national parks. Since we have these fixed assets does the deficit really matter? Has it changed our lives? I don't think so, I have not changed one thing about my life because we have a deficit. Why do reporters like Brendan Murray keep reporting the negative and not the positive aspects of the deficit? Maybe because it is all political.
