Response to Stallion (Reply #2)

5. The real news is a bit different.

The deficit was predicted to be rather larger than last year's under the conditions extant in May '17, which were those left behind by Obama.

The deficit was to hit $1 trillion per year by 2022.

That's news to most people, to be honest.

But it's old news for some.

The real news is that the deficit increase is large than projected. Not that most news sources will frame it that way or say what the increase against projection is. They're happy leaving their readers with a misunderstanding, because it's a truthie misunderstanding.
