So, fine, the 2010 deficit was around $1.294 trillion.
But it’s actually $122 billion less than Bush’s 2009 budget deficit.
…the $122 billion improvement on the deficit “is the biggest one-year nominal drop in the deficit that has ever occurred.” We probably won’t see headlines blaring, “U.S. achieves biggest one-year deficit reduction in American history,” but that just happens to be the case.
Of course based on the silence from the Democrats, they’re not interested in ballyhooing the fact that they’re more fiscally responsible than the Bush administration’s last budget.
Total silence. Ugh. Come on, people. Wise up.
