Senators Warn of Ballooning Budget Deficit
Two senior U.S. senators -- George Voinovich (R-Ohio) and Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) -- are asking the Congressional Budget Office to recalculate its 10-year budget projections. If last year's tax cuts are made permanent and spending continues to increase, they say the federal government faces a $900 billion deficit in 2012. NPR's Andrea Seabrook reports.
