US budget deficit hits record $234 billion in February, national debt – Business Insider
The US posted a record budget deficit in the month of February, according to a new report form the Treasury Department.
The budget deficit for February came in at $234 billion, according to the Treasury, higher than the previous monthly record of $231.7 billion set in 2012. The deficit was also 8.7% higher than the $215.2 billion deficit posted in February 2018.
So much for fiscal conservatism.
Republicans scream about a balanced budget except when they are in power, and then running up the debt and deficit is perfectly fine, and no one says a thing about it.
