> This rather brilliantly cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get.
> It puts it into a much better perspective.
> Lesson # 1:
> * 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 the family spent: $38,200
> * New debt on the credit card: $16,500
> * Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
> * Total budget cuts so far: $38.50
> Got It ?????

> 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
