White House Projects Lower Deficit


“But the report says that the national debt, which stands at $14.6 trillion, would still continue to climb if a budget proposed by President Obama in February were enacted. The debt would rise to $24 trillion by 2021 — or 99 percent of the nation’s entire annual economic output.

White House budget director Jacob J. Lew said that the report, released Thursday, “underscores that we need to get back on a sustainable fiscal path and that we need to invest in economic growth and job creation.” (Washington Post)
