Daily US Deficit For 12/06/2012

The Daily Deficit for 12/6 was $4.3B bringing the deficit through 6 days to $25.6B…$37B under last year’s deficit at this point. There are still a lot of days left, but just looking at the timing of payments this year and last, I’m going to guess at least some of this “improvement” sticks. Last year’s December deficit was $59B..I’ll throw my dart and say a 30B deficit for 12/2012. I will be paying special attention to Revenue, which was down a bit last month, to see if it could have been a timing issue, or the start of a trend?
