Of course when 2040 rolls around they’ll blame Bush and move the goalposts.
The House Budget Committee’s top Democrat said Sunday that House Democrats’ budget proposal will balance the budget by around 2040.
Rep. Chris Van Hollen’s remarks came on the heels of mounting Republican criticism that Democrats have not been serious about balancing the budget.
“We believe that our projections show that the budget we will submit will actually balance,” Van Hollen (D-Md.) said on NBC News’s “Meet The Press.” “It will balance at the same time the Republicans’ budget balanced last year — which is out in the future, around 2040.”
Why not just promise to do it by the year 3000? It’s not as if they’re serious about any of this stuff.
