And we wonder why we are in trouble.



U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
 

New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
Recent budget 

cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
Annual family income: $21,700 
Money family spent: $38,200
New debt on credit card: $16,500
Outstanding balance on credit card: $142,710
Total budget cuts so far: $385
  
Maybe if we re-elect the big zero he will have a plan to fix this, with all his vast experience creating jobs and wealth how can we go wrong.

    I admit I sorta skimmed over the first numbers, but when you get down to the family budget -WOW! Brings it all home in a real way - totally unmanageable debt, looking like a hole we'll never get out of! Gonna show this to several flop-eared supporters, and see if they have a glimmer of what I've been preaching to them...probably not. But thanks anyway.

  5. No matter how hard we try, we just can't get through to some folks!

    However, in the way you broke it down, even those hard headed folks should be able to understand!

    1. Amy, Nice of you to say so but I would probably pass an executive order abolishing all laws written in the last 100 years. Thanks.
