Budget Problem !

Here is something that one of my friends posted on FB. It's one of those "not so" funny things-

U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000


Fed Budget: $3,820,000,000,000

New Debt: $1,650,000,000,000

National Debt: $14,271,000,000,000

Recent budget cut: $38,500,000,000

...

Remove 8 zeros and pretend its a household budget -

Annual family income: $21,700

Money the family spent: $38,200

New debt on credit cards: $16,500

Outstanding balance on credit cards: $142,710

Total budget cuts: $385.
