CBO: Federal Revenue to Set Record in 2013


Recommended Posts

Federal revenue will return to its pre-recession levels in 2013, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), setting a record for the most money the government has ever taken in.

In its latest Budget and Economic Update, the CBO forecasts that federal revenue will top $2.7 trillion in 2013, slightly higher than the $2.6 trillion the government collected in 2007, when the last recession officially began.

 

Government revenues had fallen by nearly $500 billion during the recession to $2.1 trillion in 2009, contributing to the $1.5 trillion deficit that year. However, federal revenues have been recovering since the recession ended in June 2009, and the CBO now projects that they will slightly eclipse their pre-recession peak.

 

In fact, the $2.7 trillion in revenue will be the most money the federal government has collected in history.

Even with all the unemployment, all the people who don't pay federal income tax, revenues are at a record high.

 

Maybe we have a spending problem.

Oh, do we trust the CBO now?

 

No, but I have higher confidence that they can predict the amount of revenue for 2013, than I have for their ability to predict the cost of Obamacare over the next 20 years.
