How do they know? Nothing is certain!

According to one account of the details, $110,000,000,000 in cuts over ten years. Seem like a lot? Total budget: $54,000,000,000,000.

54 000 000 000 000
00 110 000 000 000

0.2%.

One of my favorite analogies that I have seen in various places is to compare this to a household budget by removing 9 zeros.

In that case the new numbers save $110.00 on a 54k annual budget.

An even better perspective. Well said dear.

"And to show the American people I am serious about getting our national goverment's spending problem under control, my budget will reduce spending by $110 per household."

Wow, I'm trembling in the shadow of his Greatness.
