The news article indicates a reduction of deficits. It is my understanding unfunded spending is set to go up substantially in the next few years so this news is a temporary all is well statement. But I was thinking the 2 or 3 hundred billion building up while the debt clock wasn't should have started this year higher or was that counted last year which was supposed to be a much lower deficit? Did congress ever get their GAAP Budget Report? If these are real numbers expect Obama to pass more taxes and gold to take a hit.
