Perspective: $100M of a $4T Budget

leave a comment »


The omnibus budget from The President (complete with 9,000 earmarks): $4,000,000,000,000.

The amount that the Cabinet has been asked to save: $100,000,000

If we scale it down, that’s $1 instead of $40,000.  So, is it better to spend $39,999 or $40,000?  Today, you can get a reasonably equipped Hummer H3 for $40,000.  Would your buying decision be affected over the expense of one dollar?  That’s like saying we won’t buy the Hummer because we didn’t get a complimentary cup of coffee from the dealer.

Big whoop, Mr. President. Zero impressiveness.  How about taking out the 9,000 earmarks as a start?
