The White House Makes a ‘Trillion-Dollar Admission’

The updated budget now includes a projected 2019 deficit of $1.085 trillion, up from $984 billion in February — and more than double the $526 billion the White House called for in its 2018 budget.

“This is a striking acknowledgement following almost two years of claims that economic growth unleashed by these policies will wipe deficits away,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

Meanwhile, the average growth rate projected over 10 years has dropped under 3 percent.

Gosh, who could have predicted this?

My company got hit with a $12K tariff yesterday on aluminum and stainless steel and these are no longer manufactured in the US. But pay we must or else we get hit with storage costs.
