Ten-year deficit estimated at $14.4 trillion

If you think the White House’s $9 trillion projected deficit from 2010 to 2019 is appalling, you won’t like the Concord Coalition’s projection. Using a variety of plausible assumptions that are contrary to current law but very likely to happen (e.g., an AMT fix), they put the ten-year deficit at $14.4 trillion.

UPDATE: Maybe $14.9 trillion is even more plausible.
