President Donald Trump’s budget blueprint doubles the deficits he forecast a year ago with little expectation they’ll shrink anytime soon.
As a result, the $20 trillion federal debt that Trump railed against as a candidate is projected to balloon to $30 trillion a decade from now. And that’s despite the healthy dose of economic optimism in Monday’s budget: 3 percent growth, low inflation, low interest rates and low unemployment each year. It also assumes trillions in spending cuts Congress has already rejected.

Is this the LEAST surprising development since we learned that everyone around Trump thinks that he is a moron?

I'm pleased that you'll be supporting Trump if the debt expands.


No wait...

I've never cast a vote for a POTUS who bequeathed a larger deficit to his successor than what he inherited.

You?

We're done here, right?

You voted for a president who ran up $8 trillion in debt.

Yeah, we all know you're finished.

If Obama did this you would have his back.

I don't like the huge spending package either.

If they route a significant portion of this budget to substantive expenditures like the budget director indicated it could be a good thing...but I'll believe it when I see it.

Obama didn't.....which is one of the many reasons I don't have to be embarrassed for having voted for him...

What the fuck is this gibberish supposed to mean? It still must be paid for...

Name the POTUS, over the course of your lifetime, under whom spending grew at a LOWER rate than under Obama

That is how you do it, road.......it allows you to compare spending in different periods...

As Bv silently runs from Obama's support of the failed subprime loans.

It's always someone else's fault.

Aren't you tossing out Obama's "support of failed subprime loans" as an excuse for Scrub's Lost Decade?


You're a fucking moron.....you've voted for fucking morons who have fucked up (which is what any reasonable person would expect a moron to do....morons, on the other hand, are eternal optimists)....Own the consequences of your Moron...it's all you've got...

Actually, we remain in the expansion which began in June 2009...we are also extending the record employment streak which began under Obama......


It's looking like the Obama Boom will lap the Reagan Boom....
