I read somewhere they were calling the shutdown a high-stakes game of political chicken lol.

The president one is a bit off

Should be around 200,000$ still absurd nonetheless.

You realize your #2 costs 1944 times more than your #21?

Pointing at "2 million here" and "3 million here" is completely counterproductive and likely not to bring about any real cuts. Most of them are earmarks, which is what kept our political system somewhat stable.

It's especially silly when people target spending for the executive or legislative bodies. Realize that they account to 0.8% of total spending. These are the hundreds of personal, as well as thousands of support, that are codifying laws, placing them into execution, and just in general trying to adapt the system to an ever-changing landscape. We spend the same amount every year buying new planes for the military, which bring about near-zero benefits to the general populace.

i didn't make this thread for debate although you can debate on it all you.

Adam and i were just talking in channel once and mentioned we paid presidents 1 million or something $$ a year. and that didn't sound right. i knew they got money for life but i didn't know how much.

but like i said if you guys want to turn this into a debate go right a head i personally just don't feel like debating on this.

Are you implying that the US budget is filled with $3 million earmarks or spending things?

If within the US budget $3 million was spent per line, and the budget was a standard 46 lines, you'd need a budget 26,000 pages long. The actual budget is 2,403 pages long, including a 1,360 page index (IE, no spending allocations).

Real spending comes from large expenditures ($1B+), not things that "add up."
