$100 Million out of $3.5 Trillion

The Volokh Conspiracy links a nice video illustrating Obama's call to reduce our $3.5 trillion budget by $100 million. Here's another way to illustrate the point:

Budget: $35,000
Spending Cut: $1
*All figures in $100,000,000

So, Obama's belt-tightening effort is the equivalent of someone with a $35k/year job passing on one candy bar or one soft drink.
