President Obama ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100
million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.
I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same
thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on
groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's
time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and
I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio (1/35,000) of
my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of
spending $2,000 a month, I'm going to have to cut that number by six
cents. Yes, I'm going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that's what
sacrifice is all about.
I'll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries
– six cents worth.
Did this President actually think no one would do the math?
I hope this little example helps folks understand how idiotic a
$100 million cut is in a $3.5 trillion budget – ludicrous!!!!!!!

Where can I find this "budget" that you speak of?
