The Federal Budget
Recent projections by the Congressional Budget Office place the cumulative 10-year (FY2002–11) surplus at $5.6 trillion. This figure is more than $1 trillion higher than the estimate given last July for FY2001–10, primarily because the projection window was shifted forward a year.
