The U.S. government posted a $55 billion budget surplus in January, up from an $18 billion deficit in the same month a year ago, the Treasury Department said on Wednesday.
Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a $45 billion surplus for last month. Treasury officials said the surplus was boosted by the highest receipts on record for the month of January.
You know it's just too bad President Obama's not a white guy, or else he would be getting all kinds of credit for saving out economy.
Oh, and there's this too.
The current fiscal year-to-date deficit stood at $160 billion, compared to a deficit of $194 billion at the same point last year.
Don't forget however that these are just facts, and conservatives refuse to believe in their existence.
