Budget

I recently tried to create a household analogy for the Debt Ceiling. It's awkward, I know, but that's because the way our government handles finances doesn't exist anywhere except for in government institutions. I asked for suggestions to improve the analogy and I received a few tweets on the subject.

So, first, let me say thank you to @es1999 for at least trying. Let's jump right in.

Watching the fictional Will McAvoy talk to people on Twitter shows me just how much people do not understand the Debt Ceiling fiasco we repeatedly go through. So, I'm going to attempt to create an understandable analogy. Please leave comments and help me refine it!
