Once again this is a nebulous report.

From the story: "President Barack Obama's budget would trim PROJECTED federal deficits by $1.1 trillion."

What does that mean???

From the story:

"Overall, the budget office says Obama's budget would produce $5.2 trillion in red ink through 2023. That is $1.1 trillion less than the deficits that would be generated over that time if no tax or spending laws are changed."

Sooooo, a sea of red ink for the next decade, if all goes well. Time for American to face the TRUTH---we are screwed.

We predicted we would be $33Trillion in debt, but now we predict we will only be $32Trillion in debt. Therefore, we have a $1Trillion surplus. Progressive math is wonderful.
