"The nation only ran a larger deficit for the 2009 fiscal year, which included the dramatic collapse of financial markets and a huge bailout effort by the government. The nation's deficit that year was $1.412 trillion."That was the year your children were sold into indentured servitude with the Chi-Coms.
"We're number 3" belongs to 2010 which broke our backs with a mere $1.293 trillion deficit.
But look on the bright side, citizens. The final 2011 deficit is $347 billion less than the estimate in the president’s February budget. Although, Pres. Obama is pressing harder than ever to get his $447 billion so-called 'jobs bill' rammed through Congress piece meal. So, it's almost a wash!
A billion here. A billion there. Pretty soon you're talking real money.
I feel so much better.
