It's an ongoing thing, not a one time thing. Democrats want to increase the relative revenue and spending by the federal government. Republicans want to decrease it. That sort of disagreement doesn't go away, so I'm not sure how a time frame fits into this at all.
No, no, You misunderstood. I was merely arguing that the sun was going to explode eventually. I'm sorry if I phrased it in a way that a reasonable person would assume I meant *today*. I mean an acceptable answer to "I wish the sun would come out" is "it's going to blow up", right?
