Like we've discussed before, the tax increase just signed into law on rich folk doesn't even cover interest payments. Hole gets deeper.
Bush tax cuts for the majority are permanent. Hole gets deeper.
Do you agree without budget surpluses the hole gets deeper? When do you project we'll run into $500-$600B surpluses unless spending is cut?
