$600 billion less in revenue and spending through the roof

That's what an internal Senate report obtained by Humen Events says about John Kerry's proposed policies.

Do you want to see a scary number? $3.5 Trillion (that's 3,500,000,000,000) increase in Federal spending.

Human Events has the report up here (.pdf).

UPDATE: I asked EiP's DC Source about this report obtained by Human Events Online. DCS tells me reports like these occur from time to time, but rarely are they as politically powerful and convincing as this one - especially during the final days of a presidential campaign.

It was also emphasized that one of the very important things about the leaked report is that it was created by the Budget Committee whose main sources for analysis and estimates were the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT). Both the CBO and the JCT are official estimators for spending and revenues for Congress - in other words, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress use their numbers.
