THE U.S. FINANCIAL PLAN - in understandable numbers

I love it when complex things are simplified so that we can all understand

Can you imagine running a country using these numbers?

United States 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, 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 credit card: $142,710

Total budget cuts: $385

REALLY BRINGS THE ISSUE HOME, DOESN'T IT?
