"The Obama administration expects the federal deficit over the next decade to be $2 Trillion bigger than previously estimated."
"...cumulative 2010 - 2019 deficit of $9 Trillion instead of the $7 Trillion previously estimated." Because, as we all know, $7 Trillion is so much better than $9 Trillion!
"...the higher number will...create political difficulties for...Obama." Isn't it just so sad how difficult it must be for Obama to spend $2 TRILLION more than he said. Poor guy...
"Even as [Obama] seeks higher revenues to pay for new climate change and health care measures...could face pressure to increase revenue or make deep spending cuts..." And history has proven that under the current two-party system, the government NEVER cuts spending.
"A companion effort could force him to break his promise to not raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 a year." Surprise!! Obama's a liar!! I bet you didn't see that coming!
