Right... You realize those are all very different things, don't you?

I'm pretty sure it's actually closer to 3.5 trillion...



Yeah 3.5 billion would be considered a fairly modest deficit considering the size of the US economy/ government.

Wow, I have never seen Woodruff get so disjointed. That made me laugh, so I reported his post. Usually you are much wittier, Woody!

Government is corrupt and spending money we don't have. ALL of them. Every government on the planet. The beauty is the US govt owns acres of land, natural resources and military weaponary. We owe meaningless pieces of paper. Eventually our ICBM's will pay off our debts (by vaporizing our creditors.)

yes, you usually seem to have smart ass comments (which I like) as opposed to name calling. Also with your Spock avatar, it makes name calling that much funnier.

Sometimes, the blunt truth is the only way to make a point.

Really, any government that prints its own money and spends it is "spending money we don't have". Whether that's corrupt or not depends on your opinion and the government in question. Usually the average Joe loses out, though.

Just so you guys know, this is technically correct.

Before a state (or a company for that matter) starts its fiscal year, it has a budget (i.e. we're going to take in this much revenue and pay out this much in expense). So, if they say on March 1, 2009 that the budgeted $300 million of expenses and then, because of cuts, they only pay out $250 million of expenses, they have effectively cut their budget.

Shocking, isn't it? It even holds true if they only spent $200 million in the previous year.

It's less about math and more about English. If they had used the term "cut expenses," then the OP would have some beef.
