The 85 billion Sequestration is 2.4% of the US yearly expenditures, which are 3.3 Trillion
If we cannot cut our Budget by 2.4% we have a serious problem, I know of no Family that could not find 2.4% in their budget or any Company, why cannot Washington do the same without everyone thinking the Sky is Falling?
In 2010 the US gave 38 Billion to other Countries
In 2011 the US have 49 Billion to other Countries
In 2012 the US gave 47 Billion to other Countries
The 2013 Foreign Aid Budget is 56 Billion ?? Why are we raising the Budget when we have no money, who are we trying to buy off??????
Hello..... no wonder we have such a huge deficit, until we get back on track, keep our Tax Dollars in the USA.
