"During January, the Treasury collected approximately $361,038,000,000 in total tax revenues and spent a total of approximately $311,802,000,000 to run a surplus of approximately $49,236,000,000."

"The Treasury not only collected record taxes in the month of January itself, but has now collected record tax revenues for the first four months of a fiscal year (October through January)."

Perfectly normal to run a surplus in January. This is the 3rd year in a row.

Don't you just love it when you see President Trump come thru like a champ with his methods of handling the government. Certainly makes Obama the fool that we knew him to be.

Normal? Hardly. Remember, the Titanic wasn't disaster for the first few days of its voyage.

How is this coning thru like a champ? Nothing extraordinary about this at all.

I remember saying back in 2009 that all Obama needed to do to get the economy rolling was to cut to cut corporate and individual taxes, deregulate, and cut fossil fuels loose. Of course he did the opposite and the economy suffered as a result.

Trump is simply getting the government out of the way and allowing the private sector to do its thing. And look at the result.

I pray each and every day that Mr Trump is as successful as B. Hussein in keeping this economic expansion going......OY, I am so glad we survived the Bush Economic Debacle.

.....and as I have stated before, I sure do hope America's Corporate Masters will allow a few more shekel$ to slip down in some real wage growth.
