For the last decade, the surplus has been on the rise.
In 2008, it was at an all-time high of $9 billion.
But in 2013, that figure was $2.9 billion less than in 2013.
Now it’s down to $1.9B, down from $3.9 in 2013 and $4.5 in 2016.
And with more than $2 trillion in debt and deficits, that’s a lot of debt for a lot fewer people.
The average debt for Americans was $36,000 in 2014, according to the Census Bureau.
In 2017, it jumped to $57,000, according a recent report from Credit Suisse.
The surplus has become a major point of contention for the presidential candidates.
Republican Donald Trump has proposed a “big” surplus.
He has called for eliminating some tax breaks and eliminating other tax loopholes.
Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has proposed spending more on education, infrastructure and police.
“I want to spend $1 trillion more on infrastructure and invest $2-3 trillion in education.
We’re going to invest in roads, bridges, ports, tunnels,” Sanders said in an interview with NBC News last year.
Sanders’ plan would boost the federal government’s debt by $2,000 per person per year.
Trump and Sanders have also called for reducing the deficit by $3 trillion.
The Federal Reserve raised interest rates in November and again in January.
The U.S. has one of the highest debt burdens in the world.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the average U..
S.-resident owes $1,879, and the average debt-to-income ratio is more than 90 percent.
