CUTTING THE $4 TRILLION ANNUAL FEDERAL BUDGET BY 25% WOULD TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE IT WAS ONLY NINE YEARS AGO?
And a cut of 25% would equate to $3,125 for every man, woman and child in the United States? That’s what one commentator says:
A $4 trillion annual budget is about $12,500 for every man, woman, and child in the United States. If the budget could be cut by, say, $1 trillion — taking it back to the 2008 level — how much good could that money do in the hands of families and businesses? How many jobs could be created? How many families could afford a new car, a better school, a down payment on a home?

How is it that cutting the federal budget back to where it was only nine years ago would be the unmitigated disaster that it is portrayed to be?
