From CNN: What Obama's pledge to cut $100 million really means - Apr. 20, 2009:
"In essence the president has asked government agencies to trim the equivalent of .003% of the federal budget."To put this in perspective, suppose that I spend $100 on groceries a week. After a .003% cut I would be cutting back to $99.997 a week. Or in other words over the course of an entire year (52 weeks) of grocery shopping I would save 16 cents!
