CBO: Budget deficit estimated at $845B



WASHINGTON — A new government report is predicting the budget deficit will drop below $1 trillion for the first time in President Barack Obama’s tenure in office.
The Congressional Budget Office analysis released today says the government will run a $845 billion deficit this year, a modest improvement compared to last year’s $1.1 trillion shortfall but still enough red ink to require the government to borrow 24 cents of every dollar it spends.
The agency also projects that the economy will grow just 1.4 percent this year if $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts take effect as scheduled March 1.
