Government Annual Financial Report Downloads  also CAFR LINKS


Here is a good question to ask all Presidential Candidates (or in fact any politician)

Mr. Presidential Candidate:

Back in 1999, Al Gore commissioned an audit of Federal Government. The results came out in 2000 where it was stated and was covered on the national media that the audit showed a five trillion dollar surplus. Then in 2004, after four years of George Bush, Mr. Bush then states there is a three trillion dollar deficit.

Well that is a difference of eight trillion dollars in four years. I have seen no accountability as to how there can be an eight trillion dollar shift in four year or where this money was spent, moved, or in essence evaporated.

My question to you is; what would be the best approach to get a consolidated financial statement as to "specifically" what happened to the eight trillion dollars?

I will point out up front that the overall and general financial statement of the Federal Government for the years 1997 to 2005 can be downloaded at: http://www.fms.treas.gov/fr/backissues.html

Again, upon review of these reports you will not be able to determine clearly where the eight trillion dollars went. Accountability is needed, so how do we get some in clear terms regarding this specific issue and at this time?
