The US Treasury may be running out of cash shortly.
The Congressional Budget Office predicts that the United States government’s yearly deficits will almost double during the next decade.
According to a recent analysis, the United States government runs a high danger of failing to satisfy all of its financial commitments as early as June.
According to a May 12 assessment issued by the United States Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the possibility of the United States government defaulting on its debt in the near future derives from the government surpassing its statutory debt limit of $31.4 trillion on January 19.
According to the CBO, if the debt ceiling continues unaltered, the US government may be in trouble as early as June. It stated: According to the CBO, if the debt ceiling continues unaltered, there is a considerable danger that the government will be unable to pay all of its commitments at some time during the first two weeks of June.
The CBO forecasts a $1.5 trillion federal budget deficit in 2023, which is $100 billion more than the February estimate.
The outcome of the present Supreme Court dispute over the discharge of outstanding student loan debt might have a substantial impact on total income in 2023, according to the report.
According to the study, a shortfall in tax collections reported through April has the potential to contribute to a greater deficit than previously expected.
However, based on its anticipated statistics, the CBO does not expect the deficit to shrink anytime soon; yearly deficits are expected to nearly double over the following decade, hitting $2.7 trillion in 2033.
According to the CBO, 2033 will see the greatest level of national debt ever recorded in the United States, stating: As a result of such deficits, the public debt in CBO predictions rises from 98 percent of GDP at the end of this year to 119 percent at the end of 2033 – the highest amount of US debt ever recorded.
