Your Copy-n-Paste is getting tiresome. Now you're pasting stuff from a year ago trying to make a case for the Jerk-In-Chief whose Obamacare is an approaching tsunami and then you try to make the payroll tax cut expiry look good for the Boy Messiah!!!<quoted text>
up to June of last year.
it'll all look better in June of this year considering Obama's payroll tax cut that expired. for example....
The budget posted a surprise surplus in January for the first time in five years, as the Treasury likely benefited from a windfall when payroll tax cuts expired.
The budget registered a $3 billion surplus, the first time there had been a surplus in January since 2008, Treasury Department data showed on Tuesday. Economists had been looking for a $2 billion gap. The surplus compared with a $27 billion deficit in January 2012.
It appeared the Treasury got a boost from the expiration of a payroll tax reduction on January 1 following the last-minute "fiscal cliff" deal. In its estimate last week, the Congressional Budget Office said the Treasury got an extra $9 billion in taxes from the expiry.
The January surplus means the government's cumulative deficit for the fiscal year, which starts in October, is $290 billion, 17 percent lower than the comparable first four months of fiscal 2012.
if all you of hard line conservatives would quit listening to the faux economists' on radio and tv you might be able to see the forest through the trees.
There are far too many holes in your denial techniques to allow for rational discussions here.
Let the NY Times do the propaganda stuff, OK? Your job is just to Copy-n-Paste. Interpretation should be left to the propaganda professionals.
