By all means, read this article in full. But while I don’t want to promote lazy reading habits, consider that at the very beginning, it summarized issues rather nicely:
* Sees FY09 deficit at highest ratio to GDP since 1940s
* GDP to shrink 3 pct in 2009, grow 2.9 pct in 2010
* White House says priorities unchanged despite forecasts
Yeah, Heaven forbid that reality should get in the way.
