Chump change

Kudos to this guy for setting all this up. Perspective is a good thing. 1/4 of a penny out of about $90 worth of pennies is what Obama has asked his cabinet to cut from their budgets. What's on the left of the white line is Social Security and Medicare spending we're committed to until legislators find the backbone to rework those programs. And don't overlook that big section on the right of the blue line which is money we don't even have and our children haven't even earned yet.

.0028571% of the budget is all that Obama has asked his cabinet to cut. We have a new definition of 'chump change'.
