Sharjah24 – Reuters: The U.S. government had a $215 billion budget shortfall in February as revenues into the government’s coffers fell and outlays increased, the Treasury Department said on Monday.

That compared with a budget deficit of $192 billion in the same month last year, according to Treasury’s monthly budget statement. 

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the Treasury recording a $216 billion deficit last month.
