I know the job of the media, in general, is to protect the Democrats whenever possible. But, does the math lie? I did some division. Ms. Chandler taught us long division and would not accept our failure. We were to learn it no matter what, I digress. I made it simple I took the $80 billion and divided it by 300 million Americans. It came out to $266. I'm just making it easy for those who didn't have Ms. Chandler climbing all over you for not getting it right. Less than 25 bucks a month for everyone. Are the Democrats trying to tell me that I'll miss a little less than $25 a month if the federal government has to make these huge, huge cuts? You honestly want me to believe I'll miss that? You do know that $80 billion converts to about eight days total out of a year that we wouldn't have our beloved federal government. Do media types want me to buy the idea that I'll miss anything that much that comes from Uncle Sugar? Hey,
Demo's, I think I can last the eight days. I'm good. I wish you could be. You really want me to believe that silly bull?
