The budget explained in simple English.

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

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 which some politicians are proud about: $385

Stop the insanity now. Vote them out and demand a balanced budget.
