Our fragile "recovery" is entirely dependent on government stimulus, as hinted at in this article. Note at the end of the article how our deficit is compared to total GDP, a meaningless and large number which serves to make the deficit sound insignificant. The federal deficit last year was around 68% of total tax revenue, but 9% of GDP sounds much better. The federal govt. needs to cut by about a third just to break even, and doing so will expose and exacerbate the depression, which further reduces tax revenue.
