Treasury IO: A daily data feed for the U.S. Treasury
The data

Every day at 4pm, the United States Treasury publishes data tables summarizing the cash spending, deposits, and borrowing of the Federal government. These files catalog all the money taken in that day from taxes, the programs, and how much debt the government took out to make it happen. It comes from a section of the U.S. Treasury called the Financial Management Service

At a time of record fiscal deficits and continual debates over spending, taxation, and the debt, this daily accounting of our government's main checking account is an essential data point that the public should have ready access to.

Original data format

The Treasury told us in response to a Freedom of Information Act Request that it does not store this data in any format other than inconsistently structured text files that don't lend themselves to programmatic analysis.

New data format

We have created the first-ever electronically-searchable database of the Federal government's daily cash spending and borrowing. It updates daily and the data can be exported in various formats and loaded into a variety of systems. It is also 100% open source and free to use. We started the project at the Columbia and Stanford Bi-Coastal Datafest Hackathon and continued the it with support from a Knight-Mozilla OpenNews Code Sprint Grant.

We want to make it easy for people to search, explore, and visualize how the government spends their tax dollars.

Apple Now Has More Cash Than The U.S. Government
According to the latest daily statement from the U.S. Treasury, the government had an operating cash balance of $73.8 billion at the end of the day yesterday. Apple's last earnings report (PDF here) showed that the company had $76.2 billion in cash and marketable securities at the end of June. In other words, the world's largest tech company has more cash than the world's largest sovereign government.

U.S. budget deficit: S&P fires a warning shot - latimes.com
Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's sounded the alarm Monday about persistent federal deficits, saying there was a 1-in-3 chance that it would downgrade U.S. Treasury bonds by 2013 from their current AAA level. Unless President Obama and Congress agree quickly on a meaningful plan to reduce the federal red ink, the agency said, the government could find itself too deep in debt within two years to justify its current, impeccable credit rating.
