The $5 billion of missing USDA
money represents 8% of its $60 billion dollar annual budget. If that lost money figure were representative of the entire U.S. government annual expenditures of $3 trillion, then your government would be unable to
account for almost $250 billion dollars in spending!
To place these numbers in terms individual familes can understand, suppose your family makes $75,000 per year. If you could not account for over $6,000
of that would you be concerned? If you run a small business that grosses $250,000 in gross revenue a year, would you be satisifed with being uable to account for $20,000 of it?
