Dude, you think about it. Deficit means that this money is not being taken from us in taxes, it is being borrowed from investors. So no, we won't have $1 trillion more, investors who want to buy T-bills will. And this recession has shown amply that in the absence of opportunities to invest, investors will just hold cash (Keynes called this the liquidity trap). Therefore, reducing the deficit is equivalent to reducing output. It has to be done, to maintain investor confidence - and it should have been done in the years 2003 to 2007 - but it can't be done all at once without crippling the economy.
