This is old new, but...

I know this is about a week late, but I had to get it out. Last week, our President asked his cabinet to find $100 million in cuts. I think most Americans hear the words "million, billion and trillion" but don't really pay attention. I always found that seeing the figure helps it hit home.

Thousand - $1,000
Million - $1,000,000
Billion - $1,000,000,000
Trillion - $1,000,000,000,000

Now, when our President asks for cuts amounting to $100,000,000, excuse me for thinking it is a political stunt when our government passed a $3,500,000,000,000 budget. Look at these numbers and decide for yourself.
