(Worthy News) – The federal budget deficit soared to $1.1 trillion for the first half of fiscal 2023, the Congressional Budget Office estimated Monday, $430 billion more than in the same time frame the previous year.
The rising deficit heralds a worsening budget picture for the federal government, especially as interest rates rise. It also presents a problem for President Joe Biden, who had previously boasted about the annual deficit falling as emergency pandemic spending declined.
