The Bush administraton has unleashed their budget. Running a deficit seems to be the norm these days, but $423 billion? Is there no sense of financial responsbility these days?
Who is going to pay off this deficit? I guess for those in power now, that’s not really their problem.
But what of Bush’s pledge to cut the deficit in half by 2009? Does he mean the yearly deficit? Of course he would, he couldn’t cut the total deficit by then, that would be decreasing it by $4 trillion. So he doesn’t actually plan on paying down the debt, just not increase it as much.
We need to have someone in Washington that has the courage to actually balance the budget instead of spending more and cutting taxes.
