You missed this part of the article. The report doesn't bode well for the Republicans either.

Conversely, the report is a sobering blow to House Republicans charged with developing a budget blueprint that could satisfy its core supporters in the tea party. Republican lawmakers had already acknowledged that they won't be able to generate a budget that comes to balance by the end of the decade. Friday's news makes that task even more difficult.
Our tax dollars at work, blind leading the blind.

I can see a few dollars here and there but 2.3 trillion?

The scammer in chief has his dirty hands all over this.

I didn't miss it and I don't disagree that the GOP hasn't offered much of an alternative, but the article centers around the Obama administrations fuzzy math.

They all have exhibited fuzzy math, hence their inability to balance the budget

President Obama’s budget plan would produce deficits of $9.5 trillion over the next decade, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Friday – more than $2 trillion higher than White House estimates.
Now, who wants to justify this? How many will ignore it?

How many will say it's all just Bush's fault?

Let's have a little intellectual honesty here.

OBAMA'S does this...no one else.

An enemy infiltrator couldn't do a better job than he is doing destroying this country.

No argument.

Well, at the least the GOP is looking to balance the budget, obama is looking to dig the hole even deeper.

Ok now, for those that were upset with a $161 BILLION deficit or a $650 BILLION deficit...how do you feel now?

Really?? Saying your trying and actually doing are two completely different things. The same thing was said in 2001-2010, has it been done yet by either party?
