With the last budget surplus exceeding 17 billion dollars does any one know what the total amount added up to for the rebates sent back? I did a google search but evidently I an too impatient and did not locate this. I am guessing less than half of the 17+ billion dollars.
I then hear they raised the budget by approx. 40 percent. Was this raising of the budget just so they could spend the money from the surplus? I would imagine they can’t really send surplus money unless it is allocated in a budget but…….
Now they forecast another upcoming surplus that exceeds 2 billion dollars. Will the upcoming budget just be increased again to absorb this projected 2+ billion surplus?
