U.S. posts 19th straight monthly budget deficit

It’s your deficit now Mr. President.  Instead of making excuses, you should simply Own It.

The United States posted an $82.69 billion deficit in April, nearly four times the $20.91 billion shortfall registered in April 2009 and the largest on record for that month, the Treasury Department said on Wednesday.

Sheer incompetence.  Here’s the “no kidding” statement of the day:

White House budget director Peter Orszag told Reuters Insider in an interview on Wednesday that the United States must tackle its deficits quickly to avoid the kind of debt crisis that hit Greece.

“Must tackle its deficits quickly.”  Good luck, when your boss won’t make any effort to control spending.
