The first assumption is about the budget deficit. The budget deficit is assumed as continuously increasing. In a sense, it is also assuming that the budget deficit's trajectory can be predicted. However, this is hypothetical and not an actual or real life conclusion.
The second assumption is that the governor's health plan will be a solution to reduce the budget deficit. The assumption is that the health sector is where the budget deficit has emerged from or that it is the ideal solution. Furthermore, the assumption is also that implementing it NOW will change the future and reverse the trajectory of the budget deficit.
