Comment Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Yesterday, I linked an article about Obama “challenging” his cabinet to find $100M to cut from the budget. I suggested it would have to grow considerably to even be a drop in the bucket. One commenter named John suggested that he should do that every day for the rest of his term, and we might get somewhere. Akston suggested that might still not get us very far:

Actually at that rate (100 million a day), it’d take well over 100 years to compensate the recent 4 trillion in new spending. And that would only account for principal, not interest.

It’s one more point that shows just how foreign the entire concept of a trillion is.

I think it’s time to listen to some tunes
