Will the government fix its spending crisis or are deficits actually getting worse?
*Associated Press, by Martin Crutsinger, April 12, 2006:
"Government spending hit an all-time high for a single month in
March, pushing the budget deficit up significantly from the red-ink
level of a year ago.
In its monthly accounting of the government's books, the Treasury Department reported Wednesday that federal spending totaled $250 billion last month, up 13.7 percent from March 2005.
Government receipts also were up, rising 10.6 percent from a year ago, to $164.6 billion. That left a deficit for the month of $85.5 billion, a record imbalance for March."
