Federal Budgeting is Nutty

Federal budgeting is nutty because the federal budget assumes every item in the budget automatically rises annually regardless of economic conditions by somewhere between 3% and 10%. Based on this insanity if we simply freeze spending at the current level and do it for a decade, the Congressional Budget Office would consider that a $9.5 trillion CUT! At 2% growth the CBO would score a $4 trillion cut.
