As our President tries to rewrite both his history and that of his predecessors, it is worth revisiting the fundamental terms of the debt limit debate. It comes down to this: our debt crisis has been magnified greatly during the recession. Have our recent deficits been due more to increased spending or reduced revenues?

Political Calculations has the answer.

It seems pretty clear that the debt limit deal should emphasize budget cutting, especially in this time of painfully slow economic growth.

Spending expanded in parallel with a greater economy and larger receipts.. but it never does contract when that shit goes away, does it?
