Before you put our courageous leaders in Washington on a pedestal, this puts their efforts into perspective…
Many people cannot conceptualize a trillion dollars. This statement was posted on Facebook to put the numbers our federal government works with into perspective!
“If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.”
