AFP - If the government bought your BBQ...

Federal government budget per day = $10.4 billion.
Number of people living in America = 318.9 million.

We know the federal government spends way too much. So, what would it look like if they spent just one day's budget and bought every American's Memorial Day BBQ? How much food would you have to cram in to cover just your share of the government's spending?

To recap, that means you can afford to eat 4 hamburgers, 22 hotdogs, 11 drumsticks, 3 ears of corn, over 14 pounds of side items, and over 4 liters of beverages all on just your share of the federal government's one-day budget!

We don't need bigger pants in Washington, we need to tighten belts! This Memorial Day, tell the federal government to cut back on the pork!
