12. No no no. I see games being played on US in this report of a report.
Edited on Wed Jan-27-10 05:51 AM by Festivito
Note the rhetorical propoganda: Obama's "towers" ... but is LESS THAN LAST YEAR'S. (LESS THAN BUSH'S BUDGET Obama takes over on Jan 20.)

Note: Then last year's occurs in a separate paragraph and is missing .4T$ according to the daily report of the debt to the penny. Should be 1.8T$, not 1.4, borrowed by the Bush budget Obama took over in FY2009.

Republicans would put the war spending into special requests, not the budget. So, now they compare the Bush budget figures (w/o war $) to the Obama budget figures (w/ war $) and try to say Obama spends more. NO NO NO. Bush spent more. Bush did not put the war budget numbers into the reported budget numbers.

Obama is currently headed for a 1.3T$ deficit by my calculations with just about 4 months. They are probably using the first quarter figures, 3 months, which included the bailouts Bush caused and Obama payed. Those payments might not be payed again so projecting from numbers including those payments would skew the projection higher. Something RWingers love to do to Dems.

EDIT: bolded
