There’s just no need for elaboration. These numbers speak for themselves:

The federal government spent $2,573,708,000,000 in the first seven months of fiscal 2019 (October through April), setting an all-time record for real federal spending in the first seven months of a fiscal year, according to data published in the Monthly Treasury Statements.

Prior to this fiscal year, the most that the federal government had ever spent in the first seven months of a fiscal year was in fiscal 2011, when it spent $2,476,257,690,000 in constant April 2019 dollars (adjusted using the Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator).

That’s a high price for an Empire that’ll be gone in a decade and a half. It’s like wasting everything on a luxury model for use as a beater that you can’t even afford to insure. Should have gone with the economy republican model. Or even a mid-sized Monarchy or something. Hey, it’s just (fake) money in (and at) the end.
