Kind on Fiscal Responsibility

Ron Kind says:
As families across western Wisconsin know, a budget is about priorities. They also know that responsible budgeting means adhering to some simple principles: don’t spend more than you take in and make smart investments that will help you down the road. Congress must start following the lead of ordinary American families by reversing years of record deficits and making key investments to grow our economy. Our country must return to the days of fiscal responsibility with a realistic, workable plan to put America back on a path to fiscal security. We need to start making decisions that will leave our children a better country to inherit.

The chart to the left is the deficit estimate under Obama's budget compared to Bush(HT: power line). Kind, if you talked about fiscal responsibility under Bush, you should be screaming about fiscal responsibility today. Kind???
