The Tucson Citizen created this handy line graph of our federal budget deficits through the years.
Note the portion of the graph that projects future deficits does not take into account the costs associated with Chimpy’s plans to
sodomize privatize Social Security or make his tax cuts for those who need them the least permanent.
UPDATE: Damn, we have smart readers here. Yes, the projections of an amazing turnaround in the out years would make a cynic out of Tinkerbell. But the Tucson Citizen is merely charting the CBO numbers, which exclude many future expenditures that you know we will face.
As my nominee for the most over-used pharse of the year says, It Is What It Is.
