President Obama ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000 ($100 million) from the $3,500,000,000,000 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.
I 'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.
I 'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio (1/35,000) of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2,000 a month, I 'm going to have to cut that number by six cents. Yes, I 'm going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is all about.
I 'll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries ' six cents worth.
Did this President actually think no one would do the math? Please send this to everyone on your list so people understand how idiotic a $100 million cut is in a $3.5 trillion budget ' ludicrous!!!!!!!
