White House trims 2014 deficit projection to $583 billion

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/12/2014 - 05:54
By Mark Felsenthal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House lowered its U.S. federal deficit forecast for the 2014 fiscal year by $66 billion to $583 billion on Friday on the basis of gathering economic momentum as evidenced by gains in hiring. "The deficit has been cut by more than half as a share of the economy, representing the most rapid sustained deficit reduction since World War Two, and it continues to fall," acting White House budget director Brian Deese said in a statement. The White House projection shows that, even thought debt is on a declining path, it would reach 72 percent of GDP in 2024 instead of 69 percent as originally estimated, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget noted. The White House said it revised its forecast in the so-called mid-session review because the national unemployment rate has come down more rapidly than expected.

(Reuters) - A grand jury indicted a Mississippi girl's softball coach and his pregnant wife on Friday on charges they engaged in oral sex with a 15-year-old player on his team, according to authorities and court records. Michael Porter, 27, the former softball coach at Ridgeland High School in suburban Jackson, and his wife, Blair, 26, who taught at a nearby middle school, have each been indicted on one count of sexual battery of a child, Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest said. The alleged incidents, which were reported to police by the now 16-year-old girl's mother, took place between October 2013 and April 2014, according to the indictment, which said both of the defendants engaged in oral sex with the girl. Michael Porter's bond was set at $25,000, while Blair Porter's bond was set at one-fifth that amount because she is pregnant, Guest said.
