President Obama’s 2013 budget would add $3.5 trillion to annual deficits through 2022, according to a new estimate from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
It also would raise the deficit next year by $365 billion, according to the nonpartisan office.The CBO estimate is in sharp contrast to White House claims last month that the Obama budget would reduce deficits by $3.2 trillion over the next decade.
In a Friday campaign email, Michelle Obama tells supporters President Obama really does love the people who shout “We love you, Barack” during speeches. For a $3 campaign donation, supporters can enter to win a ticket to dinner with the president, so he can show them he loves them, too.

John–I see this happen a lot:Someone in a crowd yells at my husband, “We love you, Barack.”That’s when he interrupts himself, smiles really big, and says, “I love you back.” And he does.That’s why Barack’s dinners with supporters mean so much to him — because they give him a chance to show it and to say thanks.I can say from experience you won’t want to miss out on the next dinner. I hope you’ll consider donating $3 — or whatever you can to support the campaign — and be automatically entered today:https://donate.barackobama.com/Dinners-with-BarackThank you,Michelle
