The US Daily Deficit for 11/30/2012 was $38.4B, bringing the November deficit through 29 days to $188B, $46B higher than the November 2011 deficit of $142B on slightly lower revenues and a $40B increase in cost.
The US Daily Deficit for 11/29/2012 was $6.1B, bringing the November deficit through 29 days to $149B. Assuming $25B of SSI payments go out today (11-30) we could easily end the month between $175B and $185B compared to last November’s $142B
The US Daily Deficit for 11/27/2012 was $10.4B, bringing the November deficit through 27 days to $132B. With 3 days remaining, it is looking like November will be the second month in a row that 2012 deficits are higher than 2011.
The US Daily Surplus for 11/26/2012 was 2.7B, bringing the November deficit through 26 days to $121B. Compared to the 11/23 update, there appears to be some improvement over 2011 and 2010, but I suspect this is a timing issue and with 4 days to go, 2012 will be right around last November’s $142B deficit…plus $20-25B for December SSI payments that look like they will go out 11/30. I’m still saying $160B-$170B deficit for November….hopefully I’m wrong 🙂
The US Daily Deficit for 11/23/2012 was $2.8B bringing the monthly deficit to $109B through 23 days with 5 business days remaining. The chart below shows that November 2012 is roughly in line with the past 2 years.
