Since 2009, in just the month of November, federal tax revenue increased from $133.6 billion to $161.7 billion, a quite robust increase of more than $28 billion, or 21%. Meanwhile, federal spending increased from $253.9 billion to $333.8 billion, an absurd increase of just under $80 billion, or 31.5%. Remember, this is just one month– November– we’re looking at. And 2009 spending levels were already elevated in the midst of what was to be temporary federal stimulus.

    “2009 spending levels were already elevated in the midst of what was to be temporary federal stimulus.”

    It is why Dems refuse to create and pass any budget, even one straight from Obama.
    That elevated stimulus spending level has become part of the ”new normal” on which each year since 2009 our spending has ballooned up.
    IF a REAL budget goes into effect the Dems LOSE that false bottom of nearly $1 trillion.
    And they have already baked the extra money into their budget pie each year since.
