In this article, there is a lay out of what is to come with the Obama Administrations new budget. It entails where cuts will need to be made to be able to decrease the overall debt. It includes job incentives, and reversing the tax breaks for millionaires with a "Buffett" plan, named after Warren Buffet- which would require anyone making over a million a year to pay no less than 30% in taxes
This comes as a relief for the middle class, however this is much outrage over this issue (as if there isn't partisan outrage over all the issues)..

A lot of predictions have been made, which I would clarify as being policy claims (as, conveniently, they do have to do with governmental policy). They advocate what the Obama administration should be doing to fix the deficit.
i.e. "[The Obama Administration hopes to] cut the deficit by $1.5 trillion through 2022." It can bee seen as "The Obama Administration should cut the deficit by $1.5 trillion through 2022."
