    ‎"If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand." - Dave Ramsey

    I don't think anyone could have summed up our current situation any better than that. It just proves that bloated government and liberalism are horrible ideas. And also that liberals shouldn't be allowed to spend money. EVER!

    You must add :

    "And they refuse to earn more income" (no tax revenue increases)

    Under Bush your statement would read like this :

    "If the US Government was a family, they would be making $55,000 a year, they spend $72,000 a year, & are $302,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending (on tax cuts, and wars) to add to their spending to $75,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand." - In the Bush years - klein


    Never give the keys back to the drivers seat to the GOP !

    And you forgot to add that they get a better job to make more money...like selling Weiners. Or maybe they dont get fired for drinking on the job so they have money to pay their bills.

    Surely you can't be talking about me, as you can tell my bills are paid, otherwise I wouldn't have cable, internet and phone, electricity & water,car & home insurance.
    I'll get a winter job to help me out, and next Spring it's going to be 1 special event to another. All these that I did, and doing, this year, and get some more.
    I can earn more in 1 weekend then you in an entire month, and if it's really good, like Boonstock, more in 1 day !

    I won't need to work next Winter at all. Actually, I really don't need to this year either, but it's nice to have some more extra spare cash on the side.

    The "Bush Years" were primarily liberal years in Congress. Enough said.

    The story was told today that when Obama was first elected he assigned someone to get him all the info. on the deficit. He didn't like what he saw in the submission and shelved it. From there he went on his health care kick. Then all this stuff happened.

    Be honest. You just do it so you can finally ask folks if they`ve seen your weiner and for once not get arrested for it.
