The Dems and Republicans are arguing over a $30 billion difference in budget cuts. My ROUGH estimate is that the US government spends $3 trillion a year. Arguing over that $30 billion is like arguing over the ONE PENNY change when you buy a 99 cent diet coke for a buck. Not only that but taking a week arguing over that penny. At the sake of not getting back to work (read government shutdown). This would be funny in a movie. SAD in real life. Amerika is broke and screwed.
