First Glimmer of the OMB Budget Report: But what’s a nice little surprise for me is this from Peter [Orszag]:

As president, Obama has called for... extend[ing] some of the Bush tax cuts beyond their 2010 expiration date, for example. But in light of the new deficit figures, Orszag hinted that Obama may revisit some of those decisions when he submits his next budget in February. “Whatever their cause, the administration is very concerned about those outyear deficit figures,” Orszag said, “and getting those deficits under control is a top priority of this administration.”
