Don’t recall this happening once during the Barack interregnum. Still acclimating to all this winning after the last couple decades.

MAGA!

Nice but premature.
Tax collections are not even, there is a strong seasonality in it. Not surprisingly the best month is always April, but Jan/Feb tend to be good too.
So, this is nice but the actual state of the fiscal balance needs to be checked over a much longer period. Six months minimum I think before we can be sure of a trend.

It did, regularly, because of unevenness in tax collections.
Which is why this is premature.

I switched to Fox Business from FNC and I ain’t ever goin’ back. Had no idea the range and depth of FBN coverage, and all my favorite FNC people pop in their set all day long.

That debt clock is made up number just like the doomsday clock. Not that it isn't pretty accurate but made up in any case. Sixty billion is not even a rounding error.

“That debt clock is made up number just like the doomsday clock. Not that it isn’t pretty accurate but made up in any case. Sixty billion is not even a rounding error.”

IMHO the software that runs the doomsday clock is not programmed to go backwards. That was an unheard of concept.

Didn’t have time to view the referenced chart but I’m supremely confident things are beginning to move in the right direction. DJT won’t take his eyes off the ball, no matter what the media and others do. Momentous times!

Don't forget that moving the prime rate will erase any gains quickly.

It seems Yellen is doing her best to derail the Trump Train. (NO BRAKES!)
