I was pleased to see that President Obama took the axe and red ink to the proposed federal budget, removing one-half of one percent of the propsed amount. I thought this is something I could aspire to in my own personal budget so I could share the pain that our country will have to bear with this refreshing federal fiscal restraint. Taking my $60,000 income, slashing one-half of on percent from it (a total of $300), I will have to find a way to sacrifice 82 cents per day for the next year (perhaps this is the CHANGE that candidate Obama spoke of during is campaign). I don't know how I'll do it, but I'm determined to follow the example of our new administration. Now all I have left to do is figure out where the money is coming from in my budget to cover the increased taxes that California and the City of Pleasanton will impose if we approve measures A-G on the upcoming ballots.
