White House trims 2014 deficit projection to $583 billion

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 07/14/2014 - 23:55
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.
