We are cutting back!!!
We are cutting back and you may want to also….
We’re going to bite the bullet, too!!!!
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 $3,000 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 cut back.
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
$3,000 a month, I’m going to have to cut that number by nine cents. Yes,
I’m going to have to get by with $2999.91, but that’s what sacrifice
is all about.
I’ll just have to do without some things,
that are, frankly, luxuries nine cents worth.
Did this President actually think no one would do the math? Do people
really understand how idiotic a $100 million cut is in a $3.5 trillion
