Senior campaign adviser David Axelrod, speaking on "Fox News Sunday,"
repeated claims that Obama's plan would cut the deficit by $4 trillion
over the next decade, bringing the budget shortfall down to a point
that would "stabilize" the debt. The plea from the Democrats now is, "he needs another four years in order to make the magic all happen."

bring the budget into balance. With the deficit clocking in at more
than $1 trillion once again this year, he suggested that's not the goal
in the near-term.
