A Matter Of Opinion

Economy and deficit

You've been elected to Congress. Congrats. Which problem to address first?

1. The economy, with stimulus measures such as tax cuts and/or spending increases or something else?

2. Or the deficit, with austerity measures?

Wouldn't addressing No. 1 impede progress on No. 2 ... and vice-versa?
