Federal  DEFICITS

 

From the president’s January 12, 2016 state of our union speech:

 

And we’ve done all this while cutting our deficits by almost three-quarters.”

 

Below are the deficits, by date since 1994 when President Clinton was in office.

 

President Obama’s “smallest” deficit year was Fiscal Year 2015 (October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015.

 

The daily deficit for 2015 was $894,647,358 (that is over eight hundred ninety four million dollars per day).

 

From October 1, 2015 to  January 12, 2016 (the date of the state of the union speech) the daily deficit had shot up to $7,183,313,068 per day. (Over seven billion dollars per day.)

 

That new figure was not mentioned by the President?
