You're right, our kids will be paying this debt, which is exactly why I want to see our national debt lowered. That $839 BILLION difference between the two candidates' proposals is going to go a very long way in the RIGHT direction. Even if Obama doesn't get all of his pie-in-the-sky dreams fulfilled, it's still the right direction. And if Romney doesn't get all of his, it's still the wrong direction.
If you think the new healthcare bill isn't going to cost us at least 839 Billion dollars, then good for you. I'd love to live in your world. Again, I'm a Ron Paul girl and not a fan of Romney but if you have to choose between bad or worse, you deal with the bad and pray he comes to the realization that spending needs to be cut. Because you know the worse won't stop until he's out of office.
