  1. When the treasury anounced it was going to issue 100 billion in new treasury bills.

    From what i understand the primary dealers would buy the bills and the 100billion would then be lent to the federal reserve........Where on the feds balance sheet will this 100billion show up?
    And does this add to the balance sheet of the us government? Can someone explain this to me please.
