"So tomorrow’s homework assignment, the president said, is for the congressional leaders to figure out how to get from $1.7 trillion to $2.4 trillion."

This is the amount they would increase the debt ceiling by.....


So that would be a $2.4 trillion reduction (increase in debt ceiling) over 18 months (Aug. to Feb. 2013)

or $ .13333 T per month and the existing deficit for 2011 is $1.5 trillion


.13333 x 12 = $1.6 trillion


I'm no mathematician, but would that not be an increase in the deficit?

Steve do you use Google Chrome?

no.. I had a google program for short while.. it didn't play well with another program... and my computer didn't seem to like it.

so I switched back to Mozilla Firefox.. which I really like...
