FILE - In this Sept. 1, 2020 file photo, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin testifies before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, during a hybrid hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. The federal budget deficit hit an all-time high of $3.1 trillion in the 2020 budget year, more than double the previous record, as the coronavirus pandemic shrank revenues and sent spending soaring. The Trump administration reported Friday, Oct. 16, that the deficit for the budget year that ended on Sept. 30 was three times the size of last year's deficit of $984 billion.
