U.S. Federal Budget At Critical Juncture

The title of this post is a little misleading since Congress hasn't passed a federal budget in over three years. Nonetheless, one is able to gain insight into the actual revenue and expenses going into and out of Washington and it is not positive.

A recent presentation by Mary Meeker, general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, at the Ira Sohn Foundation Conference titled USA, Inc, provides detail on the out of balance nature of the federal government's budget. Some highlights from her presentation:
  • Expenses exceed revenue.

The entire USA, Inc presentation is a worthwhile and eyeopening read.
