Just when you hope democrats open their mouths to speak–they clam up, possibly afraid to invoke the work “deficit.” Even when it’s they who are being fiscally responsible in cutting the “deficit.”
..the $122 billion improvement on the deficit “is the biggest one-year nominal drop in the deficit that has ever occurred.” We probably won’t see headlines blaring, “U.S. achieves biggest one-year deficit reduction in American history,” but that just happens to be the case.
So the budget deficit is actually less than projected? It’s less than the Bush budget deficit of 2009? Where are the voices of fiscal prudence in the democratic party?
