  4. Steve Ballmer:

    The deficit is quoted on an annual basis, we lose about $ 750 billion a year as a country — could be a trillion. We don't use forecasts. We only use actuals. But $ 200 billion additional per year would be very significant on top of the $ 750 billion that we are already losing. Of course, there may be new revenue streams. We didn't hear about that today. But that can come.
