    US budget deficit rises to record $2.2trn for half year
    Apr 13, 2021 – 5.45am

    Washington | The US federal budget deficit more than doubled to a record in the first half of the fiscal year amid a fresh wave of stimulus payments to cushion Americans from the persistent coronavirus pandemic.

    The deficit last month was $US659.6 billion ($866 billion), the third-largest on record and biggest since last June, swelling the total from October to March to $US1.71 trillion, according to a Treasury Department report on Monday (Tuesday AEST). The six-month total compares with $US743.5 billion in the prior-year period.

    Total spending in the first half of the fiscal year was $US3.41 trillion, double the level of revenue. Bloomberg

    In March 2020, the deficit was $US119 billion, which didn’t reflect the first wave of payments in the Cares Act approved late that month.

    The March 2021 outlays included $US339 billion in the direct pandemic-relief payments -- of up to $US1400 per person -- authorised under the $US1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan bill passed last month.

    With additional payments in train, that law will widen the fiscal gap by more than $US1 trillion this year and over half a trillion in fiscal 2022, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

    While fiscal hawks worry that the deficit-fuelled spending will boost inflation and make the US less desirable for investors, sentiment in Washington has shifted, with diminished worries relative to decades past. Interest rates have remained low globally for decades, offering more room for government spending.

    Even so, in a nod to long-term deficit worries, the President’s proposed $US2.25 trillion infrastructure-and-jobs package includes a hike in the corporate-tax rate, and a planned wave of new social spending is likely to include higher levies on wealthy individuals.

    Total spending in the first half of the fiscal year was $US3.41 trillion, double the level of revenue. A year ago, spending over six months reached $US2.35 trillion against receipts of $US1.6 trillion.

    For March, outlays totalled $US927.2 billion, up from $US355.8 billion a year earlier. Revenue rose less dramatically, to $US267.6 billion from $US236.8 billion.

    Two trillion is specualted to be about the value of the illegal marijuana market annually in America ??? The failed drug war that Biden and and other tax dollar reliant prohabitionists are all about is sacrificing American kids to become victims of organised crime while they make sure that America goes broke . Every nation on earth that supports Americas failed drug war policies are all broke and in trillions of dollars debt .
