Federal taxes that is,
try this calculator:
Third Way | Your Federal Tax Receipt
Funny how you don't account for the national debt. It really doesn't matter where our federal income taxes go.............the national debt alone is so out of control that servicing the INTEREST on that debt crushes economic growth and any semblance of economic recovery.
If you'd bothered to read the chart it shows you how much of your taxes goes to paying interest on the debt.
This calculator is ample proof that Mitt Romney is full of shit when he promises to balance the budget after cutting taxes and increasing defense spending,
by cutting everything else.
Social Security benefits 20.3% of my Tax Dollar
SS was a Government Promise that is would be Self Sufficient
I bet 100.00 Obamacare will not be Self Sufficient as Promised either
Romney will promise whatever he thinks will get him elected and deal with the consequences then.
We need to cut defense spending and social security. Social security has morphed into something it wasn't meant to be, I mean foster kids, for example, get social security from the day they are born until they day they die. What the hell for? And that's just one example.
Here's where your tax dollars go.
GOP blasts $1 million Hawaii conference for judges in wake of GSA scandal - The Hill's Floor Action
Two senior Senate Republicans on Monday blasted plans by judges in the 9th Circuit to hold a conference in Hawaii this August that they said could run up a tab of $1 million or more, and includes a schedule of sport fishing, yoga, surfing lessons and Zumba dancing lessons.
According to a website announcing the conference, the meeting is authorized by law to consider "the business of the courts and advising means of improving the administration of justice within the circuit." According to the schedule, it opens Sunday, Aug. 12, with a golf tournament, and includes a tennis tournament on Tuesday and an ice cream social and garden tour on Wednesday
With the exception of 1994, 2009, and 2010, S.S. tax collections have exceeded benefits paid for each year of the last two decades. Also the total S.S. tax collections have exceeded benefits paid for the two decades. The future of course does not look as bright as the past.

I'll have a lot more leverage AFTER the election.
