DEFICIT: Good choices not given

| November 17, 2010 9:00 PM

I could not answer your online poll this week. There was no upside to the predetermined negative outcome of:

1. I'd rather pay more income taxes

2. I'd rather lose some Social Security benefits

3. I'd rather pay higher gas tax

Here is my similar poll:

1. I'd rather get hit by a truck

2. I'd rather be run over by a train

3. I'd rather have lightning strike me

Are these the only alternatives we Americans have anymore? I would rather think we can work to turn things around for a better future.
