Well laid plans gone wrong?

I found this little piece of information at the link below.  The date stated is Feb. 26, 2009.  These are the plans that had been laid out for our country that I guess someone forgot to tell us about.

CHINA — China View, (Feb. 26): U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday sent to Congress a budget that projects the deficit for this year will soar to $1.75 trillion, reflecting massive spending to pull the nation out of recession. The budget overview will call for nearly $4 trillion in spending in fiscal year 2010 beginning Oct. 1, and leaves open the possibility that Obama will need an additional $750 billion in bailout money. … [Obama] also expected the deficit to decline steadily in the coming fiscal year, reaching $533 billion by 2013, so as to fulfill his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.
