The solution to the deficit

This was not my idea- it's quite old actually, but it will work. Atached is the solution to all of our nations financial issues. We will call them United States Notes, and we will print enough of them every year to balance the budget. Abraham Lincoln did it during the Civil War, and we continued printing them even until 1971. So this isn't some odd old idea that I pulled out of my ass.

You may ask me, 'but, Garfield, can the government do it? Is it legaly enabled to print money?' And the answer is yes, because Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution says:
"The congress shall have the power... To coin money, regulate the value thereof..."

There you have it folks, debt free paper money- print it and balance the budget.
