What does U.S. Treasury do with vaccine excise taxes it collects?

U.S. government

(NaturalNews) Earlier this year I started to research what's known as the "Vaccine Injury Trust Fund," a "stash" of cash collected on every vaccine sold and given to children and adults in the USA. (Story by Catherine J. Frompovich, republished from ActivistPost.com.)

That Trust Fund is "financed" by a $0.75 excise tax on each vaccine active recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On multi-valent vaccines, i.e., those containing more than one disease active e.g., trivalent vaccines like MMR, DTaP, etc., then 75 cents is paid for each valent, or a total of $2.25 for a 3-valent vaccine.

Now, here's an interesting aspect: The U.S. Department of Treasury collects those excise taxes and also manages the Trust Fund's investments. Investments? Sounds like there should be quite a stash in that Trust Fund portfolio since the U.S. Vaccine court has paid out just over $3 Billion [$3,159,410,649.38] [1] in claims and attorneys' fees as of June 30, 2015. That got me to wondering what the Vaccine Injury Trust Fund is valued at; where the money is invested; and that there should be an accounting of public record posted on the Internet.

Keeping all the above facts, figures, and questions in mind, I decided to contact the Treasury Department to obtain just one figure or value: The asset balance of the Vaccine Injury Trust Fund as of the last fiscal year end. Searching Treasury's contact page, I made email contact with a bureaucrat [not naming names], who forwarded my email to another bureaucrat who, in turn, forwarded my email to another bureaucrat who turned out to be somewhat helpful.

But, before I get to the "help" part, here's what readers ought to know what I wanted:

"Would you please direct me to where I can obtain the current asset balance of the Vaccine Excise Tax Trust Fund that funds the HRSA / Vaccine Court awards. I can find the amounts of awards paid out over the years, but I'm having difficulty in finding how much has been paid into that Vaccine Excise Tax Trust Fund since its inception, over the years, and what its current asset value is/was as of 2014 or 2015 fiscal year. Thank you for your assistance and considerations to my request."

Now, keep in mind these statistics according to VAERS: [2]
More than 10 million vaccines per year are given to children less than 1 year old, usually between 2 and 6 months of age. At this age, infants are at greatest risk for certain medical adverse events, including high fevers, seizures, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Some infants will experience these medical events shortly after a vaccination by coincidence.
Note "coincidence" is woven into Health and Human Services vaccine mythology. Can there be any correlation and causation, including coincidence, going on? I remember in the 1980s when vaccine mandates were being ramped up, as that's when SIDS starting appearing on the medical radar. Coincidence! That's what got me interested in investigating vaccines and tracking them, since I was hearing from physicians and clients about those "coincidences".

Consider how many times mandated vaccines have been ramped up since 1953! Over three times the number of vaccines in the first six years of life—the most important life-systems-forming years, since many bodily functions are not fully developed, especially the immune system until around two years of age.
