How The Federal Government Spends Your Tax Dollars

With new proposals to cut the deficit coming out of the deficit commission, it's good to know how the government is spending our tax dollars. This WSJ article has a taxpayer's itemize receipt showing how the money is spent. The top four include social security, medicare, medicaid and interest on the national debt.

Very good and intelligent information.

Defense and Social Securirty costs stand out, highlighting a crippling Government cost management system, IMHO.
