Or are you talking about the times when Republican Administrations got tax cuts with pretty good economies (Reagan, GWB) and managed to spike the deficits?

Or maybe you think that during a major recession, lowering the deficit is more important than people having food stamps and unemployment so that they do not starve?
Essentially nobody is in danger of starving to death in America today, certainly not because of a lack of funds. Food stamps don't prevent starvation, they allow people to spend their cash on cigarettes and beer because their food is taken care of.
