    ...'The real highlight of the August budget report was that government outlays, or total spending, soared to $433.3 billion, not only 30% higher than a year ago, but the highest government monthly outlay of any month on record.'

    US Government Spends A Record $433 Billion In One Month As Deficit Explodes

    Federal deficit jumps by $214 billion in August


    Absolutely pathetic.

    Is this Trump's/the Rep's idea of 'small government'?

    Useless pricks.

    So now you support “small government” in addition to being a trump supporter. Quite the change for you.

    Holy shit! Hey would you mind listing the Democrats votes to cut spending and avoid this deficit? I must have missed them.
    I know how much they hate deficit spending.

    Well if you would only pay your fair share of the tax burden, we wouldn't have this problem, no would we?

    Just how much free taxpayer money did you get back last year?
