Yeah, right. Same crapola Obama promised/lied about in his campaign. He not only hasn't tried to "halve" deficits, he piled on $3 Trillion more... (that Bush's fault, too? Not saying I'm a Bush fan... but if you have any integrity at all, you gotta call an asshole and "ASSHOLE"!... regardless of your political leanings.) In case nobody has noticed.... occasionally they "mention" doing something about the deficits... and that's about as far as they get.
