CountryData "UnitedStates" "GovernmentSurplus" problem

It appears that Mathematica 6 is lacking surplus and deficit data for all
years except 2005. Also, the data for GDP doesn't include 2006.

Here is where you can get more data:

(*GDP data from many years is available*)

In[1]:= CountryData["UnitedStates",{"GDP",All}]//Short

Out[1]//Short= {{{1970,1,1,0,0,0},1.025*10^12},<<34>>,{{<<1>>},<<12>>}}

(*surplus and deficit data does not appear to be*)
In[2]:= CountryData["UnitedStates",{"GovernmentSurplus",All}]

During evaluation of In[2]:= CountryData::notprop:
{"GovernmentSurplus", All} is not a known property for CountryData.
Use CountryData["Properties"] for a list of properties.

Out[2]= CountryData[UnitedStates,{GovernmentSurplus,All}]

In[3]:= CountryData["UnitedStates","GovernmentSurplus"]

Out[3]= -3.47*10^11

In[4]:= CountryData["UnitedStates","GovernmentSurplus","Date"]

Out[4]= 2005

In[5]:= {Internal`$CreationID,$Version}

Out[5]= {853857,6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (April 27, 2007)}
