    President Obama's "$4 trillion in deficit reduction" counted the "savings" from the wars we aren't going to fight.  That has to do with what baseline you start "deficit reduction" from.  The President's budget proposals for the next 10 years already assumed that we weren't going to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan (after 2014) and still increase the deficit according to the CBO.   As that article indicates, the President's proposed budget increases, not cuts, the deficits unless ALL of the Bush Tax Cuts expire at the end of this year.
