Dunno.

This sounds like a "this is how we think it's going to play out for planning purposes".

Notice the massive jump in spending without an increase in revenue. I'm not sure where the projections come from, it doesn't say.

First off, projections are not much more than "hopes", and are based on a number of assumptions, many of which will be blown up by whatever new legislation is done on the revenue front with the new administration.

Second, I suspect a number of these revenue jumps involve sunsetting of tax cuts that Bush implemented early in his term, some of which will no doubt be extended (Child care tax credit, etc.)? Maybe? Not sure.

Third, revenues are still waaaay less than expenditures. Bush's current budget has a massive deficit.

Finally, all these numbers are a bit gimmicked because the amounts aren't held constant for inflation. A 4% increase is real dollars is more like a 0% increase in inflation-adjusted dollars.
