What if you ran your home the way Congress runs America?

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Congratulations to this week’s Comment Contest winner, Nannette .

I don’t usually re-post things from Facebook because so many folks will have already seen them, but I thought this one was important.

Conversations about the national debt involve such large numbers, there’s no way any of us can really relate them to our normal lives so we can understand the arguments.

The graphic, below, does something I wish I’d thought of doing. It knocks off a bunch of zeros and, keeping the exact same proportions, uses the results in an example of running a household.

I welcome any and all comments but especially from anyone willing to defend the people in Congress and the White House who have, for generations, brought us to where we are today.
