Last week, the White House announced changes in projections for fiscal health. In June, the government will have a surplus and the projected deficit for this year will be $214 billion less than originally projected. That means the deficit will be 4.7% of GDP (the nation’s total income), down from the original forecast of 6%. Moreover, the deficit will be below 3% of GDP by 2017. Now it is time for the follies to begin.
