The topic in Something to Think About is "Out of Sight, Out of Mind." We have now had a series of Republican and Democrat debates. One topic that seems to have been overlooked is the federal deficit and resulting debt. Rather, we have seen a variety of new program proposals from the candidates that will have a dramatic effect on both. Why has the topic been ignored? Is it because it is easier to campaign on increasing benefits or spending more money than it is to promise fiscal restraint, eliminating government waste and ineffective programs, or by chance, launching entitlement reforms?
