Hmmm... I'm going to refrain from comment until you've had the time to take a look at two links I have to share. I am well aware and completely
understand why most people have not read the original source documents of what the media thoroughly spins and butchers before calling it something
like news and actually keeping a straight face while saying it. If, after you look over these...you can still make the same argument, I'll eagerly
await a very interesting debate.
The first one is what you might call the quick reference version of the United States Federal Budget for Fiscal Year 2013, on it's assumptions and
projections every year out to 2022.
Federal Budget / FY 2013 / Assumptions and Projectons 2010-2022
That link there has everything. All of it. Defense, HHS, HUD, Treasury, Veterans Affairs, Indian Affairs and when you get down to the end, it includes
assumptions of future Unemployment, GDP, Interest rates and the like. Every single number that was required to form the 2013 Budget proposal as
produced by the White House.
This one...makes me feel downright bad. I spent weeks in the old fashioned endless chain of PDF files version of the budget to build the graphics
boards of the thread linked in my signature. I'm sure he had a staff on this though, and that sure would have been nice. I think you'll love the
interactive nature of exploring all the major line items of the whole budget. It also gives you the ability to change anything and have a running
total kept for what it comes down to. A simulation, after you're done exploring the actual numbers..if you choose to on this one. I've looked over
it...the numbers all seem to match pretty much what I saw through the pages of the White House documents themselves..so he did a hell of a job making
U.S. Federal Buget in a User Friendly and Interactive format.
I have school..so I won't even be back till after 9pm Central tonight. I'll wander back and see what you thought. By the defense budget number I can
just figure you hadn't seen quite this sort of layout for the numbers as the White House just published it all.
