the deficit is staring to shrink, gopers. are you happy about that?


The revised estimate means the government will run a trillion-dollar deficit for the fourth consecutive year, though the gap will narrow slightly from last year’s $1.3 trillion.

“The fundamental story about the federal budget has not changed: Although the deficit is starting to shrink, it remains very large by historical standards,” the agency said yesterday in a report.

Update 2:

gopers don't like to read more than a few paragraphs i guess. they didn't read the last two paragraphs.

Update 3:

the goper war on birth control has put obama ahead in the swing states.

Update 4:

Oh and we only have ONE War Going on NOT 2...thanks to PRESIDENT OBAMA

    2011 Deficit = $1.299 Trillion

    2012 Deficit = ( Congress voted to Raise the Debt Ceiling by $1.2 Trillion. You and I both know they will SPEND ALL of that, and will probably need MORE....Since there is NO Senate Budget, we can only Guess)

    2013 Deficit = Mr. Obama's Budget calls for a $1.3 Trillion Deficit.

    Oh and we only have ONE War Going on NOT 2? After all the RHETORIC about Mr. Bush's Wars Causing all THE DEBT, and Iraq has been over for 2 years and No DISCERNIBLE DROP in Spending? Hmmmm...

    I missed the part where there's Shrinkage?


    MORE Credit Hogging, by Mr. Obama? Mr. Bush Signed the Papers that established the Withdraw Date. Blame and Credit are so funny....Mr. Bush Gets Blamed for a Recession Caused by Actions during Mr. Clinton's Term, and Mr. OBAMA Get Credit for Stuff, like OIL Production and Ending of the Iraq War that were clearly from Mr. Bush's Term. Sad when people can't Play Fair.

    supply me a call once we start up seeing a surplus back like we did below Clinton ok? Being "purely " $162.8 Billion contained in the pink isn't some thing to have a good time. Oh and remember about this little bit on the right of your article: "The Congressional funds workplace initiatives that the deficit will strengthen extra contained in the 2008 funds 12 months, which began on Oct. a million, projecting a decline to $150 5 billion before the imbalance starts to upward thrust back in 2009."

  • "The budget shortfall for 2012 will be $1.2 trillion, about $93 billion more than forecast two months ago, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office."

    How is this an indication that the deficit is shrinking?

    they'll be happy when democrats fixes the republican deficit, so a republican can f$@# is up again.

    until then, they will pretend no progress is being made.

    even worse, they won't even recognize that the biggest element of the deficit is the bush tax cuts.

    pathetic stuff from the cons

  • More proof that you don't cut spending when you want to decrease the deficit. You GROW the economy. Cutting spending will only slow the economy as it has done in the UK, Wisconsin, and every where else it has been tried.

    The article you quote says the exact opposite

    "The U.S. budget deficit this year will be larger than projected while health-care costs aren’t growing as quickly as anticipated, according to the federal government."
