1. Same old story

Revenues increased but spending increased faster. My biggest criticism of Trump.

2. Of course it is.

75% of the entire federal budget is a "zombie". The money is collected and spent regardless of whether the worthless charlatans in the capital building ever bother themselves to present a budget or not. This is a mutual party issue as the last thing these politicians want to be responsible for is casting a necessary but unpopular vote.

When the government was "shut down" the spending was still running $1T over revenues.
