    I'm going to bite the bullet, too!!!!
    President Obama has ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100
    million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.
    I am so impressed by this magnificent sacrifice that I have decided to do the same
    thing with my own personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on
    groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's time
    to get out the old budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back.
    I have decided to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio as the President,
    which is 1/35,000 of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead
    of spending $2,000 a month, I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents.
    Yes, I'm going to have to get by with only $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is
    all about.
    I'll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries, six cents worth.

    Did this President actually think no one would do the math? Please send
    this to everyone on your list so people understand how idiotic a $100
    million cut is in a $3.5 trillion budget. It's ludicrous!!!!!!!

    This is the reason he gave the amount of 100 million - it sounds bettter than .0000035%
