EZ FAMILY FORMULA

TO QUICKLY FIGURE THE AVERAGE FAMILY’S COST OF FEDERAL SPENDING

Bringing those big, BIG numbers home….

THE FORMULA:

Simply put a ZERO on the number of Billions

and that is your family’s cost.

EXAMPLES:

The budget deficit for April, 2010 = $82 Billion. Your family’s cost? Add the ZERO to the number of Billions and you have taken on $820 of more debt in April for your family to pay.

The recent Stimulus package = $787 Billion. Put the ZERO on that number of Billions and your family’s budget hit for that bill comes to $7,870.

Total US Govt spending for 2010 is estimated to be $3.7 Trillion ($3,700 Billion). Put the ZERO on that number of Billions and your family’s cost for this year’s US Govt comes to $37,000.

WHY IT WORKS:

There are about 100 Million households (families) in America.

So, each $1 Billion spent (100 Million x 10) cost each family $10, on average.

All government money eventually comes from We the People.

Personal budgets and taxes are now mostly done by the household, not individually.

Each family is unique, of course, but this is the average effect on every family.

Remember….Just place a ZERO on the number of Billions.

---PLEASE PASS THIS ON SO OTHERS CAN EASILY KNOW, TOO---

Thank you, Jeff.
