If you’ve ever wondered how this White House has added almost $6 Trillion to the debt in four years. Below might explain:
BEFORE STATE OF THE UNION STARTED — POLITICO: “Obama: State Of The Union 2013 Ideas Won’t Add To Deficit.” “‘Nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime,’ Obama will say, according to advance excerpts of the speech provided by the White House, which offered no details of the proposals.” (Jennifer Epstein, “Obama: State Of The Union 2013 Ideas Won’t Add To Deficit,” Politico, 2/12/13)
AFTER THE STATE OF THE UNION: @stevebruskCNN: Jessica Yellin reports admin officials refused to put a price tag on the president’s new proposals tonight.
Sounds about right.
