http://boards.fool.com/nations-budget-vs-family-budget-30469...http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/01/06/1176226/-You-want-t......Love a well-considered analogy.SLL Note: The only numbers in the article are the ones they don't address. To wit:Annual family income: $21,700Money the family spent: $38,200New debt on the credit card: $16,500Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710Budget cuts so far: $38.50The so-called 'article' goes on to spin all manner of stories about how we need to keep spending, and even spend more. Of course, those with common sense understand that no stories will help us when we can't afford the debt service and become Greece.It would be funny if it weren't so sad that so many people believe in this pap that you can spend your way to prosperity.THE MATH IS NEAR.
