When it comes to deficit reduction, Democrats and Republicans are focusing on the unimportant , rather than the important things. They are overlooking the obvious, which makes one think that our leaders don't know anything. If they strain their brains a bit , they will conclude that terminating the Afghanistan War will solve the problem.
