Submitted by Mr. Right
The July budget gab has narrowed on lower spending and payment shifts.
The gap shrank 46.2 percent to $69.6 billion from a $129.4 billion shortfall in July 2011, the Treasury Department said [Friday] in Washington.

For the first 10 months of this fiscal year the deficit was 11.5 percent narrower than in the year-earlier period.
