This is always my preference. My worry is that it seems (to our idiot legislators) to NEVER be time to cut the deficit. It seems to always be either "economic growth is [negative/anemic], we can't cut the deficit now" versus (unstated) "I'm not going to kill the golden goose that will keep me in office"
