Analysts warn the federal government is on its way to another deficit of more than $1 trillion.
The Congressional Budget Office predicts the deficit will come in just under $1.2 trillion. The total national debt is now just under $16 trillion.
President Barack Obama and Republicans remain divided over how to bring the annual deficit down.
The president says he wants spending cuts along with higher taxes on high-income Americans. Republicans oppose the tax increases and want to focus on spending cuts.
