It even ran a surplus in January. Remember the MSM is pushing the narrative that lower taxes will cause lower collections. It will be the opposite. If there is a cut and there is more money for jobs it will increase the collection of taxes with more people working and paying in. Instead of one at 28% you have two at 20% lets say. One reason we should be so excited is the following...

Over the last twenty fiscal years, going back to 1999, the federal government has run surpluses in the month of January 13 times and deficits 7 times. Six of the Januaries in which the federal government ran deficits overlapped President Barack Obama’s time in office—including January 2009, the month Obama was inaugurated, and the Januaries in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016. The federal government also ran a deficit in January 2004, when President George W. Bush was in office.


Six of Eight. At least he was good at something.

MAGA....

Too many people fell for the constant LeftWing Democrat BS for years.

Maybe now we move from DemocratEconomics to realEconomics 301
