Does anyone care about Budget deficit? - 2004 year thru 10 mon is $396 B
With only August and September left in the 2004 federal budget year, the red ink through the first 10 months totaled $395.78 billion. That's ahead of the revised record budget gap in 2003 of $374.27 billion.

1. According to Cheney, "Deficits Don't Matter"
Of course, unless a DEM is the President then they matter.

2. No. Pravda has told the sheep "deficits don't matter"
Like the Good Germans before them, Imperial Amerikan Subjects will salvishly believe Pravda until brutal experience tells them otherwise.

3. Right-it is just 396 Billion my grandkids will have to pay - the birth tax
the tax that Bush loves to increase - the birth tax.

4. No problem. Just print more money. who cares about inflation
Heck, all the military dictatorships in south american used to have 1000 percent inflation per year.

That's what Herr Bush wants, so why not?
