Sorry. That's actually the federal deficit for the month just ended - February 2009.
At this pace the annual deficit will be $2.3 trillion (perhaps a bit more, as February is a short month!) To no one's great surprise, this is more than the $1.75 trillion deficit in the forecast.
I await the outcry...
