Day 90 -- April 19: Obama senior advisor David Axelrod, appearing on the CBS Sunday morning show Face the Nation, describes the taxpayer tea parties as “unhealthy”.Day 91 -- April 20: Obama insults taxpayers by calling for a mere $100 million in spending cuts from the federal budget within 90 days.
- $100 million represents .003% (three one thousandths of a percent) of Obama’s FY 2010 budget.
- $100 million is what the federal government spends every 13 minutes.
- $100 million is less than one day of interest on the “stimulus” bill championed by Obama.
- As Harvard Economist Greg Mankiw points out, cutting $100 million from the federal budget is the equivalent of a family spending $100,000 per year cutting a $3 latte from the annual budget.
