Another apology for using bad numbers

For the last few months I've been sending out apocalyptic messages about our Seven Trillion Dollar budget deficit, the amount I thought we were going to be short for the next 10 years.

My bad.

The true amount is $9 trillion. Whoever combined this Washington Post chart with the Obama logo wasted his time, for it's now inaccurate.

The nine-trillion dollar amount assumes that Obamacare will be "budget neutral", but that's the number I'm running with from now on.

Please stay tuned for future apologies.

I'm always waiting for those apologies...Just like I'm waiting for that $700 that Bill G has owed me since 1982.
