Or so says the National Priorities Project.
Meantime, education gets a measly 2 cents on the dollar and the environment gets 2.5 cents. Transportation? You don't wanna know. This country spends nearly three times as much on veterans benefits as it does on transportation.
Who pays for all this? Individuals pay 34 percent, while corporations pay only 5 percent. Big surprise. Most, though, will be paid by those who come after us, because 57 percent comes from borrowing.
Anyway, with the big bad deadline to pay taxes looming, now you know where your hard-earned cash goes and doesn't go.
Military, good. Education, bad. Interest on debt, a winner. Food, a loser.
