Fiscal cliff disgust…..

I really don’t know where to start in relation to the financial state our country is facing right now. And our jerkoff politicians from BOTH sides disgust me. If our country was a household, we would have been bankrupt and shut down by now. In fact, the summary below puts it in those exact terms.

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 credit card balance – $142,710
Total budget cuts so far – $385

I am including the original picture because it was not my analogy. NOTE: I did correct the $38.50 to $385.

The bottom part of the image is just classic.
