WEB Notes: This is a puff piece. The government just doubled spending and supposedly gave you a tax break. Look, if I double my spending, but I get paid less that means I go under. We will continue to watch these numbers. By the way, did anyone actually get a tax break? One worth mentioning?
The federal government this January ran a surplus while collecting record total tax revenues for that month of the year, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.
