Last week, the White House predicted that the budget surplus over and above Social Security would be a billion dollars.
Now Congress releases its forecast that claims the surplus is actually a nine- billion- dollar deficit.
The Congressional Budget Office says in order to make ends meet, the Government will be forced to tap into Social Security funds.
In anticipation of the announcement, the Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee is accusing Republicans of fiscal mismanagement.

The remains of Aaliyah's plane sit in pieces just off the runway in the Bahamas, but new details are coming out about what happened in the moments before they took off. The ambulance crew who rushed an injured passenger to the hospital says he told them there was an argument about how much weight the small plane could carry.

(SOT, ALAN YURMAN, NTSB)


The rest of the singer's crew, who did not board that fatal flight, finally left the Bahamas Tuesday without talking. Aaliyah and her crew were supposed to fly back to Miami on this plane...the same one they flew in on. But the pilot says Aaliyah's crew was in a rush and wanted to leave one day early. So--they chartered another plane back to Miami....the Cessna that never made it out of the Bahamas.
Winesses say the plane crashed just after takeoff, about two hundred feet from the runway. The impact cracked the plane in two and ejected nearly all the passengers. Then the plane burst into flames.

(nat-- new video)


The 22 year old singer was in the Bahamas to shoot a new music video. She already had a platinum album and Grammy nominations, but Aaliyah was starting to branch out.

Geese droppings have made the area largely unusable, and the Lynchburg health department has received concerned phone calls about the situation.
The American Legion voluntarily closed the lake, which will be drained later this year.
Health officials say the droppings could cause high levels of fecal coliform bacteria in the water which could then lead to health problems in those exposed to it.
