Next year's projections are for another $1.3T

That's this year's (FY2011) projected budget deficit. I think you're total is right, iirc.

2012, last I knew (CBO March), was slated for about a $1 trillion deficit. But, the CBO - as you probably know - has to assume current law prevails in the future (i.e Doc fix, AMT hits Middle Class, yada, yada).
