In 2009, Barack Obama promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.
Instead, the national deficit tripled his first year in office.
But, that was back in 2009.
Today that promise to cut the deficit is not that important to him.
Yesterday, in an exclusive interview with ABC News, President Obama rejected calls to balance the federal budget.
“I WON’T Balance Budget Just for the Sake of Balance.”
