$.5T Deficit

The Congressional Budget Office will reveal tomorrow that our deficit is about to expand further still, from $401B this year to $500B — half a trillion dollars — next year. They forecast a total $6.3T deficit in the next decade. That’s not including $2T tax cuts planned by the White House. Tax cuts that will, says the White House, reduce that deficit.

6.3+2 = 8.3.

I guess President Bush would call that “fuzzy math.”
