Running the numbers

President Obama has called for $100 million in cuts from the 3.5 trillion dollar budget.

Let’s look at these numbers next to each other

......$100,000,000.00 in cuts from
$3,500,000,000,000.00 federal budget.

Let’s put it this way. If the entire federal budget were one dollar, then you would have to make that cut 350 times before you would have cut one full penny from the budget.

In other words, Obama has successfully called for cutting one thirty-five thousandth of the budget.

And you wonder why people are assembling in masses to protest this reckless spending!
