Why can’t DC see this, or they do and just don’t care about killing the country
This puts things into a much better perspective as to the present economic situation..
Lesson # 1:
* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000.00
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000.00
* New debt: $1,650,000,000,000.00
* National debt: $16,271,000,000,000.00
* Recent budget cuts:$38,500,000,000.00
Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:
Money the family spent: $38,200.00
New debt on the credit card: $16,500.00
Outstanding balance on the credit card: $162,710.00
Total budget cuts so far: $38.50
Got It ?????
Lesson # 2:
Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
Let’s say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....
and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.
What do you think you should do ......
Raise the ceilings, or remove the shit?
Be Happy, Be Healthy and Be Safe,
GOD BLESS YOU,
GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS,
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
