Whats a number anyways right? So they missed the mark by a meger TRILLION dollars, a mere pittence. The congressional budget office released a grim report to day on the projections and to say the news is grim would be a collosal understatement. Ok, so at what point are people going to surround the capitol and demand a cease and decist to this? At what point are people going to get their heads out of their arses and see the out right incompetence and utter decimating behavior going on down there?

Give me a break xfahctor. It's ONLY a trillion. Sheesh. Get with the program. It's like Chuck Schummer (D-NY) said, you're complaining over "chump change". Just trust the messiah and give him time. Watch him on Leno and everything will be fine. Right now you just sound unamerican, and maybe a bit terroristy. You did vote for that Baldwin fellow, so you're on the watch list.

We can only hope our public school system corrects the damage you've done. Our schools so far have done a fantastic job of removing independent thought from our youth.

I fae it is too late, in their subversiveness, they have managed all to survive the 12 year indoctrination and entered the world as even more dangerous thinking voting adults....we're doomed I tell ya!

Part of the "new" deficit is actually the cost of the actions in Iraq and Afghanistan actually being included in budget. Bush and Co. were keeping that stuff "off the books" so they could brag about the deficit being lowered and make a claim that the Bush tax cuts are what lowered it, when it hadn't been lowered at all. Yes, I do acknowledge that Obama is increasing government spending.

Actully no, it isn't. The new projections came out this morning of the over all deficite in relation to many different indicators, this has nothing to do with the budget issue you are talking about. Bush was a crook with numbers, no doubt, he was as shifty at that as he was at using boogymen to scare us in to acceptiong unconstitutional power grabs, but then so is the current administration and congress.

Well, they are all blinded by the light of the epiphany... Sorry, just had to squeeze that in... I can't believe this either. They are throwing around money like it grows on trees. Aimless spending and overspending.. isn't that what got us into trouble in the first place? We can't just keep printing more money. Watch it. In a couple years, we'll all be millionaires, maybe even billionaires. Just that we still can barely put food on the table.
