Budgeting Math

Since the Super Committee failed $1.2 trillion in mandatory budgets cuts, starting in ’13 and running through ’21, will commence. But, the $1.2 trillion in cuts are actually only $984 billion!

Social Security and Medicaid are untouchable, as are the salaries and benefits of the President and members of Congress.
