For The Record

March 03, 2009

Comparing the budgets: A chart in Friday's Section A that compared President Obama's budget request for 2009 with President Bush's 2009 budget plan and Obama's 2010 budget plan had a misleading category of total spending for each budget. The totals for each budget plan -- Bush's 2009 plan, $3.107 trillion; Obama's 2009 plan, $3.938 trillion; and Obama's 2010 plan, $3.552 trillion -- were correct, but the lists of expenditures for each plan did not add up to the total listed because some budget items were not included.
