Interesting stuff…

Got this in an email from a family friend. Thought I’d share.

 

*Lesson # 1:*
*
* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Proposed Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000(Remember we have had no budget the for past 3 years – compliments of the U. S. Senate.)
* 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: $**385**

Got It ?????*
*
OK now Lesson # 2:*

*Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let’s say, we come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in the neighborhood….and our home has sewage all the way up to ┬áthe ceilings.

What do you think we should do ……

Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?

The choice is coming Nov. 2012. *

*Vote wisely. *
