[Ed. – In the meantime, the deficit, which has already reached absurd heights, partly under Trump, continues to soar.]
Under Biden’s proposal, the lowest the deficit would ever go in the next decade is in 2027, when it would hit $1,303,000,000,000.
The proposal says that it aims to reduce deficits starting a decade from now—rather than in the next ten years.
Biden, who is 78 years old, could serve as long as eight years as president–if he is elected to a second term.
“The full set of proposals in the Budget reduce the annual deficit by the end of the 10-year budget window and every year thereafter,” says the budget. “In the second decade, the Budget’s proposals reduce deficits by over $2 trillion.”
