The U.S. government's fiscal year ended last Friday. (That was FY 2011.)
With Republicans taking over the U.S. House last November, and the U.S. Governments Fiscal year for 2011 ending as of last Friday one would figure with all the talk that the result would have been government spending finally dropped.
Guess what, that couldn't be more wrong. Government spending actually increased.
FY 2010 spending was $3.456 trillion, and although the FY 2011 final figures have yet to be reported it has most recently been projected to come in at around $3.
