    the merits of a "balanced approach"?  The vast majority of our current deficit was run up through the incredibly unbalanced methods of massive defense spending (boosted by unfunded foreign wars) and huge tax cuts to the wealthy.  So why the hell do we need a balanced approach in reducing the deficit?  It seems to me that it only makes sense to reduce the deficit by doing roughly the opposite of what we did to create it--raise taxes on rich people and slash defense spending.
