US deficit triples to record high of $1.4 trillion

The US federal budget deficit tripled to about $1.4 trillion for fiscal year 2009 in the midst of the worst economic decline since the Great Depression, the office that keeps track of spending for Congress said on Wednesday. The figure represented about 9.9 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), the highest percentage since 1945, the Congressional Budget Office said in a statement. In 2008, the deficit was only 3.2 per cent of GDP.

  • “I am going to leave it there”

    That’s the wisest thing you have said all day. I think it’s a shame devo is keeping out of this but he most probably has your profile

    worked out and would not want to add fuel to the fire. Little professor used the same technique himself but I am pleased to see him

    growing out of it. It is after all a lazy man’s way to try and shut someone up and confuse the issue.

    I said earlier that your Mother has my sympathy. I would now like to extend that feeling to you also in view of your statements above.
