Big Budget Change from Barack

I realize, that's President Obama to we citizens, but I used G.W. and George I or George II, so Barack it is for today. He's meaning business, now on this budget tightening and slashing spending. Why, he's already got ideas to cut $100 million worth of programs that he says are not serving the people. Okay, finally, we have some figures from Washington that most of us can relate to. 100M relates to 3.5 trillion in this manner. 100,000,000 - 3,500,000,000,000. See, it's going to be so easy to understand now! Slashing the same number of zeros is the simplest way to break down this budget that our leaders believe to be too complicated for we the people. Do you suppose politicians just think we're stupid, because we vote for them? Now, back to our math. Removing 8 zeros from each figure gets this into the ball park most of us are dealing in. President Obama is fully determined and full speed ahead to reduce spending by 1/35,000. That's right! What bold and brave change this man speaks of and leads! So in simple citizen terms, this man has promised to save us $1 out of every $35K spent in Washington. So, for the person making $35,000.00 a year, that amounts to saving $1.00. For those earning $70,000.00 that would be a whopping $2.00 in the bank at the end of the year! Or in the case of Washington, a payment towards the interest on the trillions of debt, already counting and mounting. If I understand political economics at all. What he is proposing to save, won't even touch the interest payment on the national deficit, if it's figured at .25%. And the budget he has proposed will further increase the deficit right along with the interest due. I never thought more money was the answer, but if this is the best we can do to reduce spending, we're still just digging the hole deeper.
