Scary Math

The deficits don't really bug me as much as it seems to bug CBS, but the sheer dollar amount really is staggering. A federal budget of $2.4T is:

$200 Billion a month
$6 1/2 Billion a day
$274 Million an hour
$4 1/2 Million a minute
$76 Thousand a second

... er .. roughly

Makes me really wish the Federal Gov't was not so omni-present in our lives in favor of a more States based system... which I believe most of our Founding Fathers anticipated our 'union' to be... not the 'central government'. Blame the New Deal. And the judges who allowed it.
