Is the recession over, or is it not over? Should be a simple enough question to answer.
If it's over, then why continue to run $1T deficits?
If it's not over, then perhaps Obama's policies aren't working.
Technically, the recession is over, so there is no reason to continue running $1T deficits (not that there ever was). So what are you going to do? Cut spending, raise taxes, or both?
And don't say "raise taxes on the rich by $82B". That is Obama's solution, which is no solution at all. Either you agree to pay for 24% of GDP spending, or you don't spend that much...it's simple.
