Your Tax Cuts at work:

Gov't Budget Surplus Hits $21B for Jan.

The federal government ran a $21 billion budget surplus last month, the best January showing in four years, as both spending and tax receipts set records for the month.

The Treasury Department said the government spent $209 billion last month, a record amount for January and up 7.9 percent from January Government tax receipts, however, also set a record for the month of $230 billion, up 13.7 percent from January 2005.

I thought that the government would run out of money, to hear the Moonbats spin it, with all those eeevil tax cuts in place.
