Gifted Education Writer

The Budget - Quick Crummey Explanation

By George:

The US Government is currently going through the "Budget Battle" pitting the Republicans against the Democrats, with President Obama stirring the pot.

Lots of people have been offering explanations of the Billions and Trillions and Debt Ceilings etc.. Ordinary people listening to these explanations tend to glaze over and walk away without any better idea of what is happening.

Great news for all those who really want to understand what the heck is going on.

If you listened to todays's Joe Crummey Show on WABC, you got an explanation that brought it home to you. No big words, no grandiose Politi-speak, no obfuscation, just a simple family scenario. You can get the Podcast of this show at The Joe Crummey Show, Friday 4-8. However, there is no need for that, since I will give you Joe's explanation right here.
