The Budget Crisis in Perspective

We’re spending twice as much as we take in.  Now, if you and I woke up one morning and saw a major cut in pay and our household budget started looking like that, after the initial panic (assuming we didn’t see it coming) we’d start cutting out things and selling off things and slimming  and streamlining to survive.
