Better Check Those Numbers
Steve Verdon ran Duck, M.D.'s budget numbers. They don't add up. With some generous assumptions Howard Dean's spending plans would increase the deficit. Duck, M.D. hasn't even been elected yet, and he's already broken one of his campaign promises.
Steve doesn't even include the effects of Duck M.D.'s "re-regulating," of rescinding Bush's tax cuts. Both would prevent economic growth which would lead to greater deficits (barring the miracle that Duck, M.D. would actually cut non-defense spending).
