Heritage’s J.D. Foster on the deficit [1]: “President Obama talks about responsibility, but the budget deficit this year is approaching $2 trillion and the national debt is set to double in just four years. Imagine what he would deem irresponsible! Yes, he inherited a plunging economy and soaring deficit. But then his stimulus and budget plans made a bad picture much worse. Politically and substantively, he now owns the irresponsible deficit — lock, stock and pork barrel.”
