@joebiden i understand what you are saying but in real world terms 11 billion dollars is still a whole lot. Just bc someone buys a ferrari doesn't mean that a porsche is not expensive lol
I completely disagree. In the real world, cutting the NSA budget could never have a meaningful impact on America's debt or American's quality of life-even if you scrapped it. When a rich person buys a porsche or ferrari its a much bigger part of their budget relatively (even if they are Carlos Slim or Bill Gates).
Well I have to agree with @joebiden on this one @goyo I do think that the NSA budget of 10.8 billion matters, but its a drop in the bucket (or even less)
Thanks, I didn't mean that 10.8 billion isn't significant. Still, if we want to talk about debt/deficits/federal spending you're right about the drop in the bucket
