Raising the Debt Limit – The Reality Video – Send it Viral

My next-to-the-littlest brother sent this excellent example of what budgeting, Federal and personal means, and the reality of raising the debt limit – it’s all about the zeroes. The following example is a bit out of date, as our Federal Debt has hit $17+TRILLION, but it doesn’t affect the impact of the example – just makes it worse. The video below is another hilarious but sobering example of the insanity of the Obama Administration spending the country into hell. The video follows the example below but has a surprise ending. Enjoy.

* U.S. 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 cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let’s 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 the credit card: $142,710

* Total budget cuts: $385

Got It ?????

OK now Lesson # 2: Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let’s say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer

backup in your neighborhood….and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do ……

Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?

Thanks to American Perspective and Woodsterman for the video. Grab it and let’s get this on every blog and in emails across the country.

Take a look at this excellent of what $15 TRILLION means. This isn’t just the stack of $100 dollars bills you may have seen to demonstrate Trillions – it goes far beyond.
