THE DAILY QUOTE
“The federal deficit could hit $1.1 trillion next year, as current policies promise to pile on debt that would exceed the size of the economy by the end of the decade. That's the latest gloomy forecast from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, an independent, nonpartisan watchdog group, which issued a report Friday worsening their previous debt projections… And if Congress, as many expect, makes the new tax cuts permanent… debt will grow even faster, reaching $33 trillion or 113 percent of gross domestic product by fiscal 2028, the analysis showed. Annual deficits would top $2 trillion within 10 years.”
