THE TAKEAWAY: [U.S. budget deficit widens in June] > [On track to hit federal debt limit before end of year] > [USDCAD trims earlier gains]

The U.S. government’s monthly budget deficit widened in June from a year earlier, reflecting an increase in spending. According to the Treasury Department’s monthly budget statement released today, the shortfall widened by 38.7 percent to $59.7 billion in June from $43.1 billion a year earlier, pushing the deficit to $904 billion for the first nine months of fiscal 2012. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had expected the budget deficit to widen to $60.0 billion in June. The Treasury Department noted that the U.S. budget deficit is on track to hit the federal debt limit before the end of the year.

The gap between spending and revenue widened in June as outlays increased at a faster pace than receipts. June outlays surged to $319.9 billion from $305.3 billion in the previous month, while receipts rose to $260.2 billion from $180.7 billion. The U.S. budget deficit is on track to exceed $1 trillion for the fourth straight year.
