That doesn't overly surprise me. For years, there has been a table of long-run budget projections included in the Analytical Perspectives of the U.S. Budget and, as long as I can remember, it has likewise projected skyrocketing deficits and debt. I've posted the latest numbers at . As can be seen, it projects that the debt will reach 283 percent of GDP by 2080 (or 154 percent if large savings in entitlements are achieved). This isn't quite as high as the GAO but I think the numbers may be overly optimistic for the reasons listed at . In any event, the debt reaches a high enough level that the model would likely blow up, same as the GAO model.
