May 10 - US government ran a $214.3 billion surplus in April
 

 
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The federal government swung to a surplus of $214.3 billion in April, primarily reflecting the revenue from that month's annual tax filing deadline.

The Treasury Department reported Thursday that last month's surplus increased 17.4 percent from a year ago. The April surplus reflected both the increase in tax revenue and a decrease in the costs of certain health care and benefit programs that were pulled forward to March.

For the first half of this budget year, the deficit totals $385.4 billion. This marks a 12 percent jump from the same period last year, an increase largely driven by the tax cuts that President Donald Trump signed into low. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the budget deficit This year will total $804 billion, a $140 billion increase from last year.

We will continue to run deficits as long as our currency continues to be backed by no real value. Hence the reason why "Deficits don't matter" - Reagan

I love the smell of my own farts. I had roasted chicken and colliflower with cheese for dinner and I just farted and it smelled amazing. I would make a candle out of the smell if I could

It’s a misleading title. They only had a surplus due to everyone paying there taxes.

This part confuses me....

we're in a bull market, according to labor stats this country is at the lowest unemployment rate in a long time, "handout programs" are begin cut left and right

yet the deficit is growing...

how is that possible???

Since the tax cuts, the gov has been running a surplus every month. If you started the fiscal year right when tax cuts went into effect, then this 1st year there wouldn't be a deficit. Remember, all the experts said the tax cuts would add to the debt, but so far it has only improved the situation. A surplus is good.

They had a surplus in Jan, Feb too and that wasn't the final tax month of April. Tax cuts are thriving and the government is making more revenue because more people have jobs now.
