Let me see here. "The U.S. budget deficit is running slightly lower than last year's through the first six months of the budget year but is still on track to top $1 trillion for a fourth straight year." All right. And Steny Hoyer and the rest of the Marxists in the Democrat Party say they don't need a budget. After all, they have an Appropriations Committee; they'll just "appropriate" more money. It's not every day I am glad I am seventy-four years old, but as I watch the Democrat Marxists destroying America, I have to say that at least I won't have to live under their tyranny too much longer.

The U.S. budget deficit is running slightly lower than last year's through the first six months of the budget year but is still on track to top $1 trillion for a fourth straight year.

The Treasury Department said Wednesday that the deficit in March totaled $198.2 billion, a record for that month. That left the gap through the first half of 2012 at $779 billion, down 6.1 percent from a year ago.

The Congressional Budget Office forecasts a deficit of $1.17 trillion for the entire 2012 budget year, which began Oct. 1. This would be a small improvement from last year's $1.3 trillion...
