"The annual deficit has fallen 32% over the first seven months of this fiscal year compared with same period last year, according to Congressional Budget Office figures released Tuesday."

You'll have to forgive Edna, aka Rob's Mom.

Unfortunately, no amount of links is going to make her or any of the other right wing fanatics believe the truth as it does not line up with their preconceived vision of how bad things are.

Not to be picky, but did you read the entire article or just the headline? The articles lists as "estimates", not actual hard numbers. I also found it interesting that the CBO says there are "higher than projected tax receipts" which contributed to the estimated reduction. Hmmmmmm, and I thought the tax cuts would "hurt this country tremendously". Things that make one go hmmmmmmm.....

This president entered office with an agenda, of course his phrase of fundamental transformation made many suspicious as to what he meant by that, but he was never asked. And then there is his dream of some powerful civilian defense force again no questions about this and what he meant. These two things made me not trust him, beyond his faith and his goofy wife and the stupid dog. So now we have been shown that his administration has been playing hard and lose with things and he doesn't know??, give me a break. Just wait for it, when you get hit in the face with the healthcare LAW then you will know that there are some who know things and are aware that this is a disaster waiting to happen... Your privacy your freedom and liberty will vanish into thin air and you will wonder what happened.

I make no excuse for former presidents, I just wish these guys would come into office and take care of the business at hand and stop trying to change U S. But know they have to meddle and this is the chief meddler

....APRIL SURPLUS LOWERS U.S. BUDGET DEFICIT....(5-11-13)...The U.S. government reported a rare surplus of a $113 billion for April- the largest in five years and a sign of the nation's improving finances....Steady economic growth and higher tax rates have boosted the tax revenue in recent months, keeping this year's annual budget deficit on pace to be the smallest since 2008....A smaller deficit is also likely to give negotiators more time to work out a deal on raising the nation's borrowing limit.....Through the first seven months of the budget year, the deficit was $488 billion, according to the Treasury. That's lower than last year's deficit of $720 billion over the same period.......

The deficit is the part of the budget that the US falls short on paying. This as the money machines are smoking form running nonstop as long as Obama has been in office. We have been downgraded for this kind of activity. You guys are actually bragging over the fact that we still don't pay our bills but we are paying slightly more of our delinquent bills.
There is three big scandals going on and one big one left behind. That's a total of 4 we know about now. Despite what the news says Fast and Furious was a scandal the administration got away with. Obama broke international among other things by not informing the Mexican government that he(Obama) was allowing guns to go across the border.

The printing presses ran non-stop during the flubs residency...an unpaid war (which chickenhearted flubs wouldn't put on the books, but Obama did), unpaid Part D, taxcuts for the wealthy that failed to create even 1 job. Your sudden concern for fiscal responsibilty is t-bullshit.

Still crying about Bush? Wow! I bet Bush still created more jobs than Obama just with the military supplies and ammunition alone. The topic does not say Bush or Iraq.

Maybe I'm just confused about "deficit" and "debt".
You're confused about alot of things. And Why are you asking for your Really's opinion on anything. Sandy doesn't know any more than you.

Maybe Dubya, the champion of Debt (he ran up a bunch) didn't school you enough on the difference between debt and deficit.

Definition Debt v Deficit:

The deficit is the difference between the money Government takes in, called receipts, and what the Government spends, called outlays, each year. Receipts include the money the Government takes in from income, excise and social insurance taxes as well as fees and other income. Outlays include all Federal spending including social security and Medicare benefits along with all other spending ranging from medical research to interest payments on the debt. When there is a deficit, Treasury must borrow the money needed for the government to pay its bills.
