The deficit has grown due to many factor, but the most significant reason for its growth is the economy. The recession has exasperated the deficit due to the lack of revenue coming in from the working class. There are far too many people on the sidelines waiting and wanting to work, but can not do so. The unemployed and underemployed pay little to nothing in taxes, this exaggerates the deficit problem. Yes, the deficit is a revenue problem, not a spending problem.
