Money amounts are thrown about today with such abandon that it’s often hard to get an idea of how much a million, billion and trillion are. Yesterday’s million is now today’s billion.
Eric Cantor, House Republican Whip, put some perspective on this in today’s New York Post. He said that “since the president was sworn into office, America has run up red ink at an astounding rate of 4.9 billion a day.”
For me, that put it in staggering terms. Our Democrat legislators don’t seem to care what burden they put on us and our children. After all, they won’t necessarily be there to handle the problem.
