Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers
I saw this headline and thought; this is truly what our Federal Government thinks of the "fiscal cliff."
One can argue that the amount of our tax money that our government plans to spend on itself is not even a drop in the bucket and it really doesn't matter. You are correct that it's not even a drop in the bucket. But all those little "not even a drops" add up.
Think about that the next time you write the check for the minimum payment on your credit card bill. While some people out there complain about how the "rich get richer, while the poor stay poor" also told themselves at Starbucks "what's another $6.50 in the credit card? I already owe $26,724.81."
Not even a drop in the bucket, I guess.
