In comments on the last post MG was challenging 2Slugs contention that the real issue was Medicare, while BuffPilot was accusing me of ignoring Obama spending. Well I am on my way out the door and will let the CBO do the talking for me:

That near term temporary light blue peak? Obama stimulus spending. That rising tide of deep blue? Medicare and medicaid.
