If you’re not depressed enough already over our shiny new stimulus package, here’s a little something to keep in mind as ever more bailout money gets added to the tab.
Congress hasn’t even begun debating the actual federal budget for 2009.
The last budget Bush submitted was $2.9 trillion. Does anyone believe that number will be lower this year? Who’s expecting some belt-tightening in Washington? Could Obama be the Six Trillion Dollar Man? He’d have no profound philosophical issues with doing it, would he?
Pelosi and Reid must figure most of us yokels will have forgotten all about the stimulus package by the time the budget comes up in October. Won’t even require a televised address by the Scaremonger in Chief to persuade the nation.
Just another year older and deeper in debt.
