Fiscal cliff explained
Advertisement
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 so far: $ 38.50

Looks like MOST American's budgets. Most fools can't seem to live within their means. I know people at my office who are making $75,000/yr (not including the 12% bonus and bennies) that are broke the day after payday. 40% of all Americans have NO savings whatsoever. I know it;s hard these days, but damn...budget much?

Fiscal Cliff is contrived bullshit. Might as well be a cartoon.

Truthout Radio host, Ted Asregadoo, speaks to Ellen Brown about the "Fiscal Cliff" and creative ways to avert it.

There is no such thing as sovereign debt. Nationalize monetary policy at the FED, reinstate Greenbacks.
