Putting the American economy in perspective

“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

My wife just told me about this quote. I think it's spot on and a really good example of why we must cut spending, perhaps increase revenue (taxes) some, and get serious about fixing the systemic problems in Washington that have caused this problem.
