    How can we have about a $7 trillion swing between what Obama claims and the CBO projects over just 10 years?


    CBO says Obama's latest budget would add $3.5 trillion in deficits through 2022
    By Erik Wasson - 03/16/12 10:09 AM ET
    President Obama’s 2013 budget would add $3.5 trillion to annual deficits through 2022, according to a new estimate from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
    It also would raise the deficit next year by $365 billion, according to the nonpartisan office.
    The CBO estimate is in sharp contrast to White House claims last month that the Obama budget would reduce deficits by $3.2 trillion over the next decade.'
