If you had 316M people living in your house, you'd see that<quoted text>Usually you have to pay house payments, food, insurance [home, auto and health], car payments, clothing, and schooling for kids and son. Say at this point your budget is doing good and you have money for extras like going out to eat regularly, and vacations and buying extra clothing that is not really needed but just wanted or any other extras. But then for some reason added expense is added to the budget because of payments going up on something or an illness that tighten your budget. So where do you get the extra money to pay for the extra expenses? I know I would cut back on eating out, vacations and things I bought just because not on the necessities to run the household.
This would hold true for household, businesses and government. Now we all know there is place the government could cut back on and not really hurt the people or country.
running the country isn't simple household budgeting.
Your problems aren't national or relevant.
Thankfully smarter people run the government.
