Fiscal Year Deficit for 2015
John Boehner is crowing that the deficit is at its lowest point since 2007.$438 billion deficit anything to brag about? In two years, that means we’ve overspent by $900 billion. To me, this is like a wife beater saying, “Hey, I’ve gone from beating her 4 times a day, to 2 times a day.”
Still. Pretty. Awful.
Mr. Speaker, a real Republican would have been Tweeting about the deficit being ZERO DOLLARS. But then again, being of the establishment variety, I guess destroying the country’s fiscal health at half of Obama’s early breakneck speed is good enough. Or as the establishment likes to say, “this is governing–good enough.”
