(AP) CBO: Administration Budget understates deficits by $2.3 trillion

Obama’s budget saw deficits totaling $7.2 trillion over the same period.

    Obviously Mr. Obama came into office with a well laid out plan to complete the makeover of America from a Constitutional Republic to a socialistic highly regulated economic basket case. Whether he constructed the plan or it was given to him to carry out (the most likely scenario), the man has done an excellent job of implementing it. He is no dummy. To see where his plan is carrying us just look at Argentina.
