http://thehill.com/policy/finance/4...jumps-20-percent-after-tax-cuts-spending-bill The federal deficit jumped 20 percent in the first 10 months of the 2018 fiscal year, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported Wednesday. Spending outpaced revenue between the beginning of the fiscal year, on Oct. 1, and July by $682 billion, $116 billion more than over the same period in the last fiscal year. The rising deficit is largely the result of the tax cuts President Trump signed into law at the end of last year, as well as a bipartisan agreement to boost spending, according to CBO. The CBO projects that the deficit will reach $793 billion by the end of the year and approach $1 trillion next year. White House estimates have the deficit surpassing $1 trillion in 2019. Get in here Trump-bots and tell me how this is a good thing. Keep in mind I will use the Sherdog search function to cross reference your thoughts on Obama and the debt/deficit.
