Bush administration projects record 2009 deficit - Yahoo! News Nearly a half of a trillion Dollars The 75 Billion dollar increase over previous predictions is do largely to the bi-partisan stimulas package, but of course Bush holds much of the blaim for the rest of it. Earlyer this year a 300 Billion dollar suplemental bill was passed by Congress as well. I am not even sure if that figure is included in this. I sure as hell hope so. We simply must make ending this trend our main goal. No matter who is president, I call on them to make balancing the budget a main goal of their administration!!!
