It's a record!

Captain Codpiece and his evil minions are (apparently less than) proud to announce the nation's biggest ever deficit at $490 billion, or just over $1600 for every man woman and child in the country; especially the children.

Even better this number does not include the cost of the war in Iraq. This is like working out one's net worth without including the cost of your mortgage; we'd all be much richer that way. Of course it probably is just good business practice to keep one's illegal activities in a separate, and easily shreddable, set of books!
