In 2017, The US Government “Lost” $2.2 Million—Every Single Minute
Illustrating the gluttonous nature and disturbing spending habits of the empire that is the United States, the US Treasury released its financial report from 2017 showing that the government lost $1.2 TRILLION dollars in 2017.
Yes, that is TRILLION, with a ‘t’.
The Goldman Sachs insider who was appointed as the Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, celebrated the report, noting that he was “pleased to present the Financial Report of the United State Government,” which showed a loss of $1.2 trillion.
After the opening message celebrating their utter incompetence in managing a budget, the report goes on to note how the US government spent a trillion more dollars than they had. This loss of money will ensure that future generations will be forever burdened with the impossible task of paying back the debt to the Federal Reserve.
