I'm Cutting Back & You Should Too - SO Pay attention to this Suggestion!!!!

I'm going to bite the bullet, too!!!!

President Obama ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100
million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($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!!!!!!!
