Question For You
What an asshat.
And, from the Truly Shocking Files:
The director of the Congressional Budget Office today updated his projections for the budget and economic outlook and is now anticipating a $1.8 trillion deficit this year, and $1.4 trillion in 2010.
This is up from CBO director Douglas W. Elmendorf's January 2009 projection of a $1.2 trillion deficit this year. In short, the US government is borrowing 50 cents for every dollar it spends.
Hey, what's another $600 BILLION between comrades? The way the Obama Express is headed down the track, that will look like a mere rounding error this time next year.
The new projected deficit is four times the 2008 deficit, which was a record high for its time.
Because everyone knows the best way to recover from the harm caused by a reckless spending orgy is to have four spending orgies at once.
