The latest budget figures from the White House predict this year’s federal budget deficit will end up at $1.2 trillion.

That would make the fourth consecutive year of trillion dollar-plus deficits during President Barack Obama’s administration.

The White House budget office also predicts the economy will grow at a
2.6 percent annual rate this year and that the jobless rate will
average 8 percent this year.
