The Budget Deficit

You ever notice that most media coverage related to our deficit problems has to do with which political party is winning the political war; rather than analyzing merits and flaws of each proposal? I for one am tired of getting someone's opinion of who is gaining in the polls. I want 'An American Plan' that adheres to what was said over seven-score years ago:
"-- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Abraham Lincoln
Just as then, we are in a fight to save our country as we know it today. Also as then, the war is with ourselves. The question is whether our politicians can lead us through the morass that we face and do we the people have the will and conviction to do the right thing?
