The Obama administration has released new deficit numbers, and they are not pretty.

The deficit for Fiscal Year 2009, which ended Sept. 30, came in at a record $1.42 trillion, more than triple the record set just last year.

A year ago, as the financial crisis hit and the Bush administration prepared massive bailout plans, the deficit was $455 billion.

In addition, future deficits are currently projected top $9.1 trillion in the coming decade.

wow... thats huge.. where did it all go? do you know how many americans could have prospered off that.... ALL OF US! yet look at the shape the common american household is in.. shameful, disgusting, puppets occupy the seats of government...

$1.42T? I thought it was somewheres around $20T... But still, that's a lot of green paper.

Shame they can spend it right. I mean, the people could really benefit, if the gov't were to lay down some for us...

I want my green paper pieces back!

Wow, thanks Obama. Thanks for putting debt on to my generation and generations to come. I should also give Bush credit, he screwed up pretty bad too.

Then again, this is probably a signal that the republic is to fall.

Is this financial death throws of a dying nation? If so can someone please send me some stamps? I want to mail some thank-you letters to the Obama administration, thanking them for change, and yes we can... EPIC FAIL!

1.4T is for one year. Wake up people. They are bankrupting the country on purpose. Its by design. The country is being taken down from the inside. Bend over and get ready for your change, here it comes!!!

I have to agree with you... this is by design as is most things where Goverment has been involved. As for bending over for my Change... I really don't want to be the catcher for Obama.

Personally, I am just going to eeek my existence out any way I can, even if it means I lower myself to eating mice, worms, larva and KFC.
