This is an outrageous figure.
Somehow the FEDGOV cannot get by on $2.7 Trillion whereas the not exactly small US FEDGOV budget in 2000 was $1.8Trillion total.
So no one in Washington has the intestinal fortitude to divvy up a mere $2.7 Trillion?
So we would rather become Greece? A lot of thieving must be going on in Washington.
