    You need to factor in the cost of the interest paid to Citibank for the treasury bills that they bought with the money - earning a higher rate of interest than they were borrowing at.

    That would be a net loss to the government.

    Again you show no understanding in business and investing ... though you claim to be a businessman. Drop it T, "ain't gonna play your silly game this time."
