Quotes-start.png "Obama's budget creates a federal deficit of 12.3 percent of GDP. That is the highest since 1945 when the deficit was 21.5 percent of GDP. It hasn't exceeded 6 percent since then. FDR, fighting the Great Depression, never had a deficit larger than 5.9 percent of GDP. This is not fiscal responsibility. This is recklessness on an unprecedented scale." Quotes-end.png
