The numbers aren't incorrect, but they're misleading. They'll be back to normal next month.

I still can't help but think that there's a fair amount of fuzzy math potentially happening with the current state of affairs. Who's really crunching the numbers? Are they just throwing things at the white board and calculating them where they fall? (J/K) I don't trust anything that comes from our government anymore. Congratulations on the erosion of trust, Republican party. It sucks having a liar, idiot in the people's house.
