Highlights
Ten months into fiscal 2017, the government's deficit, at $566.0 billion, is running a sizable 10.6 percent above the prior fiscal year. Spending is where the red ink lies, up $115.1 billion so far this year including a $23.5 billion increase in Social Security payments and a $17.9 billion increase in net interest, the latter reflecting comparatively high payments for U.S. Treasuries. Receipts are up $41.2 billion this year led by higher receipts for individual taxes.
