Proposals for 29 new government programs that will not increase the deficit at all? It’s a miracle!

From CNS News:

President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night that nothing he was proposing in the speech would “increase our deficit by a single dime.” He then proposed at least 29 new government programs.
