"We are going to cut spending"!

Since itís almost impossible for us to grasp the real significance of the numbers Washington bandies about so casually, let me put it in terms that every family in America can understand (some wag put this together).

Annual family income: $21,700
Annual family expenditures: $38,200
Increase in your credit-card debt: $16,500
Outstanding balance on your credit cards: $142,710
Amount you agree to cut spending: $385
