The American Farm Bureau Federation reported that the average cost of feeding 10 people at a “typical” Thanksgiving dinner is approximately $49.04, a decrease of 44 cents over last year.
This week, total federal government borrowing closed in on $17.2 TRILLION.
Thanks to the federal government’s gross negligence of managing the country’s finances, our current national debt could have paid for each and every American man, woman, and child living today to have Thanksgiving dinners, every single day for 30 years and 4 months! We’re talking about some serious left overs…
But the real turkeys still occupy the Capitol Building in Washington DC, and they’re still spending like there’s no tomorrow–thereby robbing future generations of Americans of their tomorrows.
