Oops

Looks like I underestimated the deficit by about 3 billion dollars.

The proposed deficit is going to be 1.7 trillion.

That’s $1,750,000,000,000.

 

So, to CUT the deficit in half, you only need to EXPAND the deficit by $400 billion or so, if you take out the trillion or so in stimulus and bailout plans.  That should be an easy trick to pull off.  Even the previous President could expand the deficit by $400b—and he did it with an allegedly conservative congress.  Hell, he went even further than that, technically, because he started out with a surplus.
