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.
