    First, this was covered already

    Second, April is tax receipts

    Third, The Government borrowed another $100B in April

    Fourth, I thought Government spending stimulated the economy, are you worried that this austerity will plunge us into a recession?

    Sure.

    But it's the first in 4 years.

    And three years after a financial calamity created by George W. Bush.

    Moving payments around through different months and time periods to attempt to make it look like a surplus, is ridiculous for even the slowest fiscal understanding people.

    No budget? No budget surplus.

    The desperation of the Left is palpable. ANy good news is because of Obama. Any bad news is because of the GOP.
    The public isn't buying it. Obama's agenda will be rolled back both by the Supreme Court and by voters and he and the Dums will be turned out of office in droves. It will be called The Great American Sobering Up.
