    If I had to guess....the near term deficits reflect congressional spending increases, but they are only appropriated a couple of years ahead. Notice a modest drop in 2020 discretionary spending. The tax cuts are in place until end of 2025, I think.

    One could conclude that the stronger economy has partially, but not nearly fully, offset the long term tax cuts and near term spending increases.

            And he's done that swimming against the fierce currents of Dems, the media and even disloyal Repubs.

            Unlike past politicians who hold up their finger to test the public wind, this guy has plowed ahead with efforts that a confused clamorous public has been cold mud to .... stirred into quicksand by the disinformation sprayed atop by media.. That's an outsider doing the business ideas that follow the common sense disallowed in college economics teaching.

            Paid the greatest percentage of his campaign $ so he would take less from the American people and so he would be obligated to no lobby-mobby.

            No accidents of luck = He foretold what he was gonna do, along with his promised results. Trump has been true to his promises, so his promised results are coming true.

            Never before have Americans had a President put convictions ahead of "the way of the swamp" and stand up to the "hail of hell" the Leftists storm down on him.

            On the world drama-stage : America is being fooled less now, so the USA is acting smarter by righting the script. Scatter, you "Chicken Littles".

            Throughout my life, I've encountered dynamic leaders who hurt my feelings. Still, I recognized their rightness to lead and I contributed to aid them and the project. Besides ... "feelings" are nothing but haphazardly pre-gathered weak habits that should have been broken long before. It's always resented to have someone else break your bad habits.
