I believe you are referring to his successful attempts to reduce the Growth of the Deficit. As for the reduction of the outrageous Federal Deficit accumulated under a Republican Presidency; George W. Bush, our President is still attempting to close tax-loopholes and convince a Republican House that the only way to bring balance is to raise taxes on the very wealthy, tie corporate tax-reductions to job-creation in the US, along side the Republican demand to reduce “Entitlements” (of which Social Security is NOT one, by the way).
It is solely the Republican Puppets of the Uber-Wealthy preventing the deficit from coming down faster.
