    Presidents Request to His Cabinet - Reduce the 2013 Federal Budget by $100 million. Are You Kidding Me...

    To all:

    I can’t believe that this President and his Democratic following think that the American public is so ignorant and backward that no one would do the math on the his recent request to his cabinet to cut $100 million from this years $3.5 trillion federal budget for 2013. Are you kidding me?

    Where is the news media, print, radio and TV? Where are the Republican Congressional Representatives and Senators?

    I am so impressed by the Presidents request for sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with our personal budget. We spend about $60,000.00 a year on household expenses, groceries, medicine, utilities, luxuries, eating out, kids and grandkids birthdays trips, golf, car and yard maintenance.

    If this President can request cuts in the yearly federal budget than the American citizens should follow suit and make the same in kind sacrifices with their yearly budgets.

    Now, let’s do the math:

    US Budget for 2013:
    $3,500,000,000,000.00 - $100,000000.00 = $3,499,900,000000.00 or a reduction in the yearly federal budget of 0.002857224%. Way to go Mr. President we are so proud of you!

    Typical family budget for 2013: (Use your own yearly budget number the percentage reduction will be the same)
    $60,000.00 * 0.002857224% = $1.71

    How these people stay in office is beyond me. What I really worry about are the people that voted for them.

    • Jones, this is a CVX "Chevron" stock board & not your private #$%$ session regarding your house hold budget. Stop the gardner, play less golf, none of us care. Post your private "stuff" on your local editorial page of "your newspaper". If you do have something to say about CVX great, you have posted interesting issues in the past.

      If you have a problem run for office yourself!!
      Back to the pool for now.......
