    The U.S. posted a $146.8 billion budget deficit in May, the largest for the month since 2009, as revenue declined.

    The budget gap rose 66 percent last month from a year earlier, the Treasury Department reported on Tuesday. Spending rose by 10.7 percent to $363.9 billion, compared with a 9.7 percent fall in receipts to $217.1 billion.

    The government is facing increasing borrowing in the coming years partly due to tax cuts enacted this year and the strain on social and health spending from an aging population. For the first eight months of the fiscal year, the fiscal gap widened to $532.2 billion, up 23 percent from last year’s $432.9 billion deficit.

    U.S. Posts Biggest Monthly Budget Deficit in May Since 2009

    Turns out a giant tax cut for corporations is bad for the budget deficit.

    I know this is the punchline to your statement, but it can't be said enough, "Boutons is a fucking retarded mongoloid completely disconnected from reality...and he probably tortures small woodland creatures."

    I think congress will never have the balls to tell us we need to live within our means. A little deficit spending is ok. The levels we are approaching is insane.

    I think they should pass a law that if they go over their means people have to vote to allow them to do so

    Yet you were for exploding the deficits with the tax cut.

    Years? Yes. Economically it's been a good run. This is the time to be running surpluses tbh.

    I care about a lot of things that I can personally change. I care about my business and making money. I care about paying my bills. I care about my wife and kids and grandkids. I care about spending quality time with them and hopefully leave them a few million when I die. I care about the things I can change.

    Dick Cheney said "deficits don't matter" when they are Repug deficits.

    The deficits and national debt were whined and screamed CONTINUOSLY about while Obama was Pres (simpson-bowles commission, Pete Peterson)

    but now? total silence from Repugs and conservatives

    .. who LIE that the deficit is caused by the social safety net (poor people) which must cut so poor people get screwed

    Worrying About the Deficit is So 17th Century
