Any budget bill that says it will balance in X years is a lie even if a well-meaning one. Because by the time X years have passed, there's a new political prerogative, a new war, a new recession/depression, and everybody has fully forgotten about the plan of balancing the budget.
Does anyone really believe we'll make it 5 years without either A) a new political makeup, whether it be Dems taking the house/senate or Dems winning the white house in 2020, B) a new war, or C) a new recession/depression?
