For all the whining and moaning and complaining that liberals do about out-of-control Republican spending, they sure can spend a lot themselves. And here to prove that fact is Free Beacon. They are reporting that in the first 10 months of this year (2015), the government has collected a scarcely believable $2.6 trillion in taxes from the American people.
That is a truly whopping amount. Yet, it still wasn’t enough for money hungry Democrats.
Despite the record revenue, the federal government ran a deficit of $465 billion.
Treasury receipts include tax revenue from individual income taxes, corporate income taxes, social insurance and retirement taxes, unemployment insurance taxes, excise taxes, estate and gift taxes, customs duties, and other miscellaneous items.
What does this mean? Well, it means that despite the record amount of fleecing the liberals did, they still couldn’t balance the budget. So just remember everyone, if a liberal Democrat says that they have a plan to balance the national budget, they are more than likely lying or have no idea how much America spends.
