sure it did. the reason we have a deficit isn't because we spent money to jump start the economy out of a depression. we have a deficit because when the economy has been healthy we haven't done anything to pay off the debt- like getting people off wellfare and making sure the business environment grows so that when we lower tax rates we still collect enough to pay for necessary government services. also we might consider not starting wars in the middle east.

He's talking about the national debt, not the deficit. Two completely different things.
