Can you Imagine when Bush first came into office, if someone told you that in 10 years, the next president would spend what equated to over 2/3rds of what the deficit was 2000, you would think they were crazy. The Deficit was 5.6 trillion in the year 2000. Obama is now going to spend nearly 4 trillion this year alone? But hey...at least in 2011 he said he will get it down to 3.5 trillion. We are spending 172% of our income! So in 2012 if we can cut spending down to 90% of our income and use 10% to pay off the deficit, we will have it all paid off by the year 2087.
