Government spending goes wild
The U.S. government just spent $429 billion in June 2017. That is the first time it has ever spent more than $400 bn in a single month. Compare to the $323 bn in outlays in June 2016.
So, this brings up a related question - what was the deficit for June? $90 billion. Wow. Are we sure that the government won't run out of cash by Sept. 30 and have to shut down?
