Truth in budgeting

Yay. Obama has done away with Bush's underhanded approach of leaving select items out of the official federal budget, thereby obscuring exactly how much the deficit was. It's a gutsy move; a less honest man might instead have opted to leave, say, stimulus spending off the budget using Bush's rationale for leaving the cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars off the books.
