US Budget Deficit Soars In October As Government Spends Over $300 Billion In One Month

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Moments ago the MTS released the final October budget report. It was not pretty, although those who read our report on how much debt was added - $195 billion to be precise - in the first month of the 2013 Fiscal Year will know where this is going. The US budget deficit was expected to soar after the September surplus of $75 billion, driven entirely by calendar shifts and pre-election propaganda, to -$113 billion. That was optimistic: the total amount of overspending in October was $120 billion. What is distressing is that this was well above the $98.5 billion deficit from a year ago, and confirms that the long-term trendline of ever greater spending continues. This was also the fourth largest October deficit in history. And looking merely at the spending side of the ledger, the US government's outlays in October alone were $304 billion. This is the third biggest October monthly spend for the government ever, and just why of the all time high $320.4 billion record in October 2008, when everything imploded after Lehman failure and Hank Paulson was literally dousing the monetary flames with brand new Benjamins.

October deficits across the years:

And October government spending from 2000 through 2012:

The 16 Trillion Dollar District of Columbia Corporation Debt Is Not National Debt!

The debt of the Federal Government Of The United States Of America Corporation as Enacted is theirs and theirs alone! You Don't Have to Pay on It!

The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 aka “An Act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia (41st Congress, 3d Sess., ch. 62, 16 Stat. 419, enacted 1871-02-21) is an Act of Congress, which revoked the individual charters of the City of Washington, the City of Georgetown, and the County of Washington and created a new city government for the entire District of Columbia. The legislation effectively merged what had been separate municipalities within the federal territory into a single entity. It is for this reason that the city, while legally named the District of Columbia, is still commonly known as Washington, D.C. However, this act was abolished in 1874, and while the name did not change, the territorial Governor was replaced with a three-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the President. This system existed until 1974 when the District of Columbia Home Rule Act allowed for District residents to elect their own mayor.

District of Columbia Home Rule Act - As Amended Through 1997

http://www.nikolasschiller.com/blog/index.php/archives/2011/01/22/7354/

The Stock Share Holders of the Washington D.C. Corporation are alone responsible for the 16 trillion dollar debt, made so by the Act of 1871 and subsequent Act revisions.

It also follows, The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 created a Banking Corporation with Stock Share Holders.

The accumulated debt held on the Federal Reserve Corporation's balance sheet belongs to The Stock Share Holders of the Federal Reserve Corporation, and the owners of its Member Banks, period.

It's okay. Don't panic. We're not like Greece in that we print our own currency and can therefore merely print the amount of federal reserve notes needed to cover the perpetual deficits, with not only not suffering calamitous adverse consequences, but free of adverse consequences.

What we should do at this point is print a batch of fiatski, whether 16 trillion, 60 trillion or 200 trillion (official, David M. Walker, Laurence Kotlikoff estimates of actual debt, respectively), needed to pay off the existing debt.

We'll finally be debt free, courtesy of the printing press, or its modern electronic equivalent, bitchez!!!

Oh yes, those adverse consiquences. 

I have several pensions, through the year, acauired when various corporate divisons entities were being bought or sold.  The first was 1972 for a generous pension to be effective at age 65 that i thought was generous because it would cover at least 2 weeks of my iving expenses.  From that time, inflation has reduced the buying power of that pension by a factor of approximately 10.  I don't really need that pension now; it is sort of a joke.  But there are many, many honest people who have had retirement buying power destroyed who haven't been alert to what was happening. 

We can expect inflation to slow for awhile but we, as a people, are going to have to accept less.

And, of cours, if you own gold, the increase in "value" of that asset is taxable.

Faber talks tough...

Marc Faber: Prepare for a Massive Market Meltdown

http://www.cnbc.com/id/49802535

excerpt:

Faber told CNBC that central bank stimulus was useless and the implosion of markets was the only way to restructure the financial system.

“I think the whole global financial system will have to be reset and it won’t be reset by central bankers but by imploding markets — either the currency markets, debt market or stock markets,” he said. “It will happen — it will happen one day and then we’ll be lucky if we still have 50 percent of the asset values that we have today.”

In the short run you can make money dealing in trash because you can bank on finding another buyer. But when the hit hits the fan, that other buyer disappears. In the case of gold however there will lways be a buyer.

To his credit Faber does not say that collapse is imminent. He just says that the show cannot go on forever as it is at the moment.

At the end of the day it will be unfunded liabilities that will force either a collapse or a reset.

Many businesses have closed forever, the effects of Sandy and the other man-made destructive force called Obama. Federal tax receipts will collapse in 2013. Sooner than later, the bond market is going to panic and then the dollar goes into free fall and all the Obama voters can take their freebies and starve as they won't buy squat.

Doesn't seem like there's any intent to do anything but let the debt grow beyond all ability to repay it.

 

Does anyone think that what might happen is debt repudiation followed by an ECB/FED led-initiative to limit money creation {i.e accounts receivable dollars/ frac reserve} to the central banks?

 

Purportedly the IMF has been seeing who'll salute the idea of repudiation.  I can't believe it's out of the goodness of their heart.

 

Seems like crisis/solution/no soup for us - more soup for central banks.

I can just hear the politician in 4-5 years that spews his line of paying down all of the debt that Obama made in ( years of office....in just one year...of course at that time we have 20,000% inflation...
