FEDERAL DEFICIT REDUCTION PLAN

Every once in a while you get a really good email. I am not like many folks, I am not an email forwarder, and I ask my friends to not send me all the thousands of jokes, touching stories, promises tied to how many times or how fast I send the message on, etc. etc. etc.

That said….

Here is a terrific email sent to me by a friend, in it’s entirety.

Now we’re talking some real sacrifices, here!
Make it a Great Day!

FEDERAL DEFICIT REDUCTION PLAN

The President ordered the cabinet to cut a whopping $100 million from the $3.5 trillion federal budget!

I’m so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2000 a month on groceries, medicine, bills, etc, but it’s time to get out the budget cutting ax, go line by line through my expenses, and go to work.

I’m going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio -1/35,000 of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2000 a month; I’m going to have to cut that number by six cents!

Yes, I’m going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that’s what sacrifice is all about. I’ll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries.
