Just imagine what the deficit would look like if the legislature made a small attempt to control spending-
Federal deficit falls to smallest level in 4 years
By the way, I cannot help but notice the Democrats whining-
Republicans said the big improvement showed that Bush’s economic policies were working to stimulate growth and boost tax revenues. But Democrats said the narrowing of the deficit would be temporary as the pending retirement of 78 million baby boomers will send costs of the government’s big benefit programs soaring.
Wasn't it the Democrats that were in complete and utter hysterics because Republicans were trying to fix the Social Security problem? They kept telling us there was not really a problem.
When Bush tried talking about the pending retirements of the baby boomers, the Democrats freaked out. Now, the Democrats are concerned about Social Security????
