BIXBY: The depth of the budgetary hole that has been dug over the past year is made clear by the fact that the administration could not produce a balanced budget even with unrealistic growth assumptions and scoring gimmicks

Replying to @ConcordC
What the nation really needs from the president at this point is some recognition that the country is on an increasingly dangerous financial path -- and some leadership in finding responsible ways to rein in the massive federal borrowing that is currently planned.

Another dubious assumption is nearly $700 billion in health care savings from an Obamacare repeal-and-replace plan that could not pass the Senate last year.

Perhaps most jarring is a proposal to cut non-defense discretionary spending by 2 percent a year. The possibility that either Congress or the administration would enact such severe spending restraints is belied by the spending increases just signed into law.

Last year the president’s budget at least set a goal of balancing the budget within 10 years. Yet he and Congress not only failed to work in that direction, they abandoned any pretense of fiscal responsibility by approving the recent tax and spending bills.

It is deeply disappointing that in his first State of the Union Address President Trump failed to mention the state of the nation’s finances…At best, it was an incomplete accounting of the state of the union.
