The largest increase in military spending in history.  Ridiculous tax breaks like 90 percent for the rich.

About a trillion dollars, representing an 84 percent increase from last year’s borrowing. 

Now, I wouldn’t complain.  I’m not all that concerned about deficits.  They come and go with economic cycles and usually decrease with increases in revenue-generating transactions.  But this is so ridiculous it may actually impact bond markets.   But more importantly, where are the deficit hawks?  I guess deficits aren’t an issue when one party has complete power over three branches of government.
