As we approach the "fiscal cliff" it's interesting to note how politicians and wives convince us we're saving money by cutting back on proposed spending. We wanted to spend $100 billion for this item, but we're cutting by only projecting $75 billion. It's like I was going to buy a $50 purse but I saved lots of money by buying a $30 purse instead. By that reckoning, I wanted to buy a BMW, but saved myself a lot of money by buying a Ford.
