What timing. Earlier today a reader sent me this photo, which she took in Athens, TN, for my bumper sticker collection:
And moments ago, new deficit numbers were released by the federal government, showing that the annual deficit was $1.294 trillion, the second highest in history (i.e., since last year). As reported by Bloomberg:
The U.S. government posted its second straight annual budget deficit in excess of $1 trillion as lingering unemployment constrained tax revenue.
The shortfall totaled $1.294 trillion in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, second only to the $1.416 trillion deficit in 2009, the Treasury Department said today in Washington.
Laugh and cry.
