I often visit the OMB website as part of my job, as there are loads of good budget data on the federal government. After reading this quote by the Dear Leader, I couldn’t resist. The President says to invest in our people without leaving them a “mountain” of debt.
Um, Mr. President, either your definition of “mountain of debt” differs from 99.9% of the population or your budget director is withholding information from you.
The chart below illustrates the CBO and WH estimates on the coming annual budget deficits. These look like mountains to me.
Either way, if the situation weren’t so grim, it would be funny.
