Every now and then I see foolishness like this from our friends on the left.

It takes a special type of dishonesty or stupidity to make this argument so for the sake of those who have heard it let me demonstrate how in three steps you can become the greatest deficit hawk in history.
STEP 1: Borrow and spend more than any president in the history of history creating the biggest deficit of all time.
Step 2. In the following year borrow less than that incredible amount.
Step 3: Begin your baseline measurement from that first year when you borrowed all that money
Viola: You can now honestly claim you have cut the deficit and pretend to be fiscally responsible.
Our friends on the left use this type of nonsense because it works with the low info voter who is their base, but I suggest you don’t try this at home, because if you do it will lead to a life dodging collection agencies and eventual bankruptcy.
