It's going to be interesting to see how the politicians govern. Obama has done a swell job of poisoning the well and the GOP base is going to be white-hot if Romney loses. But I'm sure they'll **** the bed and reinstate the defense cuts and extend the tax cuts in some fashion and the deficit will keep growing...and growing...and growing...and growing...
Increasing the deficit is obviously the worst of all the choices the law-makers can lean on given where it leads us, but it also requires no near-term accountability (especially if Obama wins), ergo it's the easiest path for the politicians to take.
