You work hard all week long and on Friday you get your check only to find that the government got there first. Federal, State, Local, Social Security, Medicare help themselves before you receive YOUR earnings to buy food, gas and keep a roof over your head.
Do you know how the federal government spends your money? Did you know that the 2008 fiscal year spend is $3.226 trillion? The government left our children a $407 Billion deficit tab to pay also as our liberal Congress continues to pass ever increasing budgets.
The liberal left wants you to think that its all due to military spending. While its true that the President’s 2009 discretionary spending has risen to $1.182 trillion fighting two wars and increasing homeland security, Congress spent far more on social programs. Worth noting is that we haven’t had a successful attack in the US by terrorists since 9/11 which might have some correlation to the spending.
The reality is that Congress decided where the other $2 Trillion went. So where does it all go? Below is the Real Deal on taxes and who drives the spending.
