Only $780 Billion

April 6, 2012

From the CBO Director's Blog: "The federal government incurred a budget deficit of almost $780 billion in the first half of fiscal year 2012...."  The good news, if this can be viewed as such, is that the deficit is $53 billion less than it was at this point last year.  It's too bad that the deficit is still projected to exceed $1.2 trillion for the entire fiscal year.
