The US Budget Deficit in Plain English

How can you explain the US budget deficit in layman’s terms? Try a paper bag and an old style font, that displays some fairly simple math.

Does this help you to understand the entire budget process and problem better? Do you think it is too simplistic?

  1. All you need now is to add in where the “cuts” aren’t really cuts in current spending but cuts to future growth and this will be just about perfect.

Please let me know what you think....
