AN ARAB FABLE
Once in his shop a workman wrought
With languid hand, and listless thought,
When through the open window's space
Behold! - a Camel thrust his face.
"My nose is cold," he meekly cried,
"Oh, let me warm it by thy side."
Since no denial word was said,
In came the nose, - in came the head,-
As sure as sermon follows text
The long, excursive neck came next,
And then, as falls the threatening storm
In leap'd the whole ungainly form.
So, folks, what would you think about a "TOTAL SHORTFALL" of $99 Trillion -- in addition to our $15.6 Trillion National Debt?
How is that even possible?!
Don't ask me; ask Neil Munro at the Daily Caller. He explains writes:
.... That $99 trillion in unfunded future expenses is more more than five years of wealth generated by the United States, which now produces just over $15 trillion of value per year.
The $99 trillion funding gap is equal to almost 30 years of the the current federal budget, which was $3.36 trillion for 2011.
