And, the gap between spending and receipts would balloon to just over $1tn by 2020 - some $200bn higher than previously predicted.

"Such high and rising debt would have serious negative consequences for the budget and the nation", said Hall. Debt held by the public as a result is projected to rise to 96.2 percent of GDP by 2028.

The tax law that President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans passed in December will cut government revenue by $1.3 trillion from 2018 to 2028, the CBO reported. But House Republicans scheduled a vote later this week on adding a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, which could force some fiscal restraint.

"Now that those tax cuts are in place, I predict that deficits will once again morph into a dire problem - a scourge upon the nation - an excuse for Republicans to target Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security for cuts", Schumer said. They could allow the middle-class tax cuts to expire, assuming Democrats would go along with extending them at some point later on.

It also raised its deficit forecast for the current year by $242 billion, to $804 billion.

The government's mounting debt has seemed of little effect on Capitol Hill in recent months as Republicans in Congress successfully worked to pass a sweeping package of tax cuts. But if Mr. Trump gets his way and Congress makes the tax cuts permanent, then the fiscal picture could be even worse. In a decade, the red ink is expected to reach $1.5 trillion.
