I came across this break down of US Federal Taxes. So where does the tax money go ?
And more importantly – how do you feel about how the money you contribute to the administration is being spent ?
Many people – actually most – don’t know where or how their federal tax dollars are being spent. They feel disengaged from the personal and societal impacts of federal spending and believe they have little influence over the creation or oversight of our nation’s budget.
Yet, the federal budgeting process is meant to be open and participatory, with elected officials fully accountable to their constituents. This is crucial for a healthy democracy where all people have the ability and opportunity to shape our federal spending priorities.
