In early January of this year I was listening to two pundits argue over the deficit, the budget and taxes. It drove me crazy because I have my core beliefs on the economics of politics, but I really did not know what was behind the budgets. So I actually started looking for the Federal Budget, and what I learned was that I really knew nothing. You can read my rant here and a possible solution: http://peoplestaxplan.blogspot.com/2012/01/debt-deals-and-deficits.html
I am posting the Federal Budget for you to look at and would like to see your reaction at the amount of money that is taxed and spent.
FYI, I am a pretty good “googler”, it took me hours to find this data in a format simple enough to decipher the numbers.
