The 3-ton elephant in the federal deficit discussion room

Jonathan Shelley forwarded this satirical look at our national debt. It’s only three minutes long, and be sure you watch it all the way to the end.
As I allude to in my response, the federal deficit, like the weather, is something almost everyone talks about, but no one does anything about:
However helpful videos such as this may be in making people aware of the deficit problem, it falls short in that it offers no solutions. What gets left unsaid is while most people admit that we need to reduce the federal deficit, very few are willing to sacrifice his or her own personal sacred cow to do so. It's fairly easy and popular to blame the rich, the poor, the politicians, any multitudes of "them" come to mind here, just as long as it's someone other than ourselves.
I'm not disagreeing with the video that something needs to be done, just pointing out that doesn't really get us any closer to a solution.
