Those Brave Congress-critters and their cuts to the Budget

$1 Trillion in cuts to government spending sounds like a lot.

Spread it over 10 years you get $100 Billion. Still sounds big.

The budget for 2011 is $3.7 Trillion. So the cut represent only 2.6%.

The budget goes up each year so these “cuts” will represent an ever shrinking percentage.

If you make $100k a year this would be like cutting $7 a day from your expenses.

Wow, what an incredible sacrifice.
