The Budget Committee Hearing Mark-up of the “Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2009.”  I will be spending all day tomorrow at this committee markup.

We haven’t seen the Democrat’s version of the budget, but it doesn’t promise to be good.  After 3 years of declining budget deficits, this year the deficit being proposed will more than double from last year. The new budget deficit for the 2009 fiscal year is estimated to be $410 Billion on total spending for the first time exceeding 3 Trillion dollars.

Scary thought.  I will have more on this tomorrow as the day progresses.
