*Reuters, by Richard Cowan & Jeremy Pelofsky, January 7, 2009

“The U.S. budget deficit will swell to $1.186 trillion in the 2009 fiscal year that ends on Sept. 30, the Congressional Budget Office will forecast on Wednesday in a new assessment of the ailing economy, according to a government source.”
