Similar to your post, I have always thought this budget cut video demonstrated in pennies was pretty cool.... It's funny how 100 million dollars sounds like a lot until you watch the video.. lol

Looks like we should be using money as construction material.

Ten Thousand Dollars
$10,000 - Enough for a great vacation or to buy a used car.
Approximately one year of work for the average human on earth.

That is for the average human on Earth, though. Keep that in mind. There are a lot of people living in extreme poverty in the world.

That's what happens when you pay for things you can't afford...

-2 wars
-tax cuts for the rich
-Social Security (more money going out then was ever paid in)
-Medicare (more money going out then was ever paid in)

The wars and tax cuts won't last forever, so the big thing we need to get a handle on is SS & Medicare. However its something no one wants to touch. Let's be honest, in order to keep them around, people will have to get less of it, or put more into it (taxes). Neither of which people will accept, so we're F***ed.

10k/year in some countries is quite a lot of money.

I disagree. There are ways to solve it, but we have to get discretionary spending under control first.

When you're making 18c/hr in a factory in China, $10k would be quite a bit.

Think we need to bring back the $10K bill, that'll make the piles a whole lot smaller.
