I don't usually spend much time on the federal budget,  but there was some concern expressed during earlier months.

Record revenue  of 515 Billion and record surplus of 218 Billion.

CBO Analysts were "Surprised", expecting about 40 billion less,  but I've suspected their calculations grossly underestimated economic growth and the resultant income flow to the treasury.

One month does not a year make, and April is historically a good month for the US, budget wise, but this one blew the doors off anything we've seen so far.
