Obama's $3.8 Trillion Budget Includes Record Deficit


ANDREW TAYLOR
02/ 1/10

WASHINGTON Spelling out painful priorities, President Barack Obama urged Congress on Monday to quickly approve a huge new shot of spending for recession relief and job creation, part of a record $3.8 trillion budget that would boost the deficit beyond any in the nation's history while only slowly beginning to put Americans back to work.

If Congress goes along with Obama's election-year plan, the nation would still end the year with unemployment pushing double digits at 9.8 percent and this year's pool of government red ink deepening to $1.56 trillion under the administration's accounting.

Govt. sets record deficit in February


By Stephen Dinan

The federal government recorded its worst monthly deficit in history in February, according to a preliminary report Wednesday from the Congressional Budget Office that said the deficit in fiscal year 2012 is already more than half a trillion dollars.

The CBOs figures show that despite repeated efforts to trim spending, the government has borrowed 42 cents of every dollar it spent during the first five months of this fiscal year.

The nonpartisan agency projected the government will run a deficit of $229 billion in February, the highest monthly figure ever. The previous high was $223 billion a year ago, in February 2011.

Another Obama Record, Third Straight Year With Trillion Dollar Deficit


10/14/2011



Congratulations Barack!

You've done what no one thought was possible until you took over the White House.

Barack Obama tripled the deficit his first year in office. Obama has kept the deficit above a trillion dollars for three straight years now.

Democrats must be very proud.

They will be proud losers in November with this record on the economy. Their fake war on women has proven a a failure, a new poll shows women picking Romney over Obama and I dare say it is a CBS poll, the media wants to keep under wraps about this news... Welcome back to the laughing liberal, I am sure you will be greeted by a few progressives lefties that lurk here too! What happened to your Bob Hope pic :-) http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/CBSNYTPoll_...

The President wants trillions more money to create jobs. We already gave him trillions of dollars, and he didn't use it for jobs. He lined his pockets, and the pockets of Uncle George Soros, and the rest of his friends. They didn't provide any jobs either. Bye Bye, Barack

Gee, maybe if ONLY the President had felt the need to pass a budget these past three years and counting we wouldn't BE in this mess. Cut spending, heck I could do a 10% across the board, everything, and get it passed.

Even Democrats are figuring it out. They know the President will lose in November, and take a good many with him. Coat tails work both ways.
