PostHeaderIcon Budgetary Clowns

Mike Henning made an blog entry on FreedomTorch, which is elegant in its simplicity:

• 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 cut: $ 38,500,000,000

Now let’s 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: $385

This is clownish tomfoolery. Should we laugh, or cry? Shoot ourselves, or shoot them? If you have the slightest inclination to vote for an incumbent next year, you are part of the problem in this circus. ◄Dave►
