42. The CBO budget projection from late last spring

said 2022 would be the year we hit trillion-dollar deficits. That was before the tax cut from December was factored in. Before, in fact, nearly any Trump-mandated spending. Nobody noticed because it might say something unpleasant.

Such deficits aren't inevitable; they were inevitable, given the factors that held about a year ago. If there's a balanced budget amendment with teeth, then all kinds of things (but not OASDI and some Medicare parts with dedicated funding) would be cut really bad.
