How to use "Exchequer" in context?

The word "exchequer" comes from the Latin word "excchemere" meaning "to draw out," because originally the money in the exchequer was taken out to pay the government's obligations. This meaning is still retained in English; for example, the phrase "the government is in debt and in the red" means that the government owes money and it is not in a good financial position. The exchequer is a financial institution that is responsible for managing the government's money, and it also collects taxes and other money that is owed to the government.
