Technically, you are correct. The govt is supposed to operate on an annual budget, supported by taxes, and us.
The govt has earned income for years. Manipulating wall street, buying and selling derivatives, and selling off what they want... technology, favoritism, real estate. Profiteering everything they can when they think no one is paying attention.
The annual treasury report is a farce. In 1999 the govt made twice the money in the background than what all US citizens made gross... then they taxed us on top of that.
Read the info on cfr1.com to see this. The proof is from a GAS govt employee that uncovered this.
The govt has become everything our Forefathers warned us about. Just look at all the "us and them" mentality.
