    What's the problem?

    Annual family income: $21,700
    Money the family spent: $38,200
    New debt on the credit card: $16,500
    Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
    Budget cuts: $385

    Looks like my balance sheet...:cool:

    that is why I don't try to think of a way to fix the problem...

    maxpis theorem of everything: If something is royally screwed up then there is someone of royalty that wants it that way.
  4. If you owe the bank a million dollars that's your problem.

    If you owe the bank several hundred million dollars, that's the Bank's problem.

    The latter statement aptly describes our current position and everyday citizens of the US are "the Bank" and the money is already gone.

    But somehow people continue to not only believe in the promises but demand that they do deserve and expect more.

    It's kinda funny the promises on the govt demanded appear inversely related to their ability to make good on said promises.

    guess where that trend leads?
