If measured against constant 2014 dollars, then this is the first time that tax revenues have brought in over $400 billion to the government in just the first two months of a fiscal year.

This is still not enough to make up for the gross and rampant spending the government has made a habit of, and in that same time the feds ran up a deficit of $178.531 billion by spending about $582.6 billion.

In more manageable terms, this means that in October and November, the Treasury spent $1.44 for every $1 it brought in through taxes, or about $5,030 per household in the United States.

In this same example, every household in the U.S. is now saddled with $1,541 in debt for just two months of spending!

This trend is a continuation of the spending policies the government practiced in the 2014 fiscal year. Then, the Treasury brought in a record of $3,020,809,000,000 in revenue, but still managed to run up a deficit of $483,336,000,000 by spending a little more than $3.5 trillion.

Over the last two months, individual income tax made the most money for the government, bringing in $192.6 billion. Taxes on Social Security, Medicare and retirement benefits brought in another $146.2 billion, and corporate income taxes brought in $12.8 billion.
