It's tax time! Let's see where your money goes...

Neat little tool to see your breakout of Federal Spending (pre-stimulus):

Enter the Federal tax you paid, and see exactly how much of your money went to where. FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!!

There doesn't seem to be a slice for the $8 per week tax cuts that the weak kneed Dems (including Obama) allowed the right wingnuts to add into the stimulus package at the expense of education and infrastructure improvements.

This sucks! Glad to see education and the environment get 4% and 3% respectively while miltary gets 42% I think since i paid over $4000 to the military alone I should at least get a couple of grenandes or a M16 come april!

I wonder how much ADDITIONAL money Irag cost our military. The regular enlisted soldiers get paid regardless, but get a little more for being in combat. I have tried to do a little research (15 mins) but it is an accounting sham. I wish I had the time and energy to really look into it.

Our military has fixed costs regardless of war or peace, but supplies and a war accross the globe has to still be stupid expensive.

Also interesting to see that 10% of my taxes go to repaying debt. This is quite a large APR for debt. I have credit cards that charge less.....
