"The U.S. Treasury continued to rake in tax dollars at a record rate in November as the federal government closed out the first two months of fiscal 2015 with $404,155,000,000 in total receipts, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.

In constant 2014 dollars, this is the first time federal revenues have topped $400 billion in the first two months of the fiscal year.

Even with these record revenues, the Treasury ran a deficit of $178.531 billion deficit in October and November as it spent $582.686 billion."

Tax revenues at record highs. Deficit at record high. Gee, I wonder if we spend too much.

The problem isn't over spending. The problem is under taxing. Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz told me so.
