…and no Republican willing to stand up and say that a great America is worth paying for.
^What he said.
“a great America is worth paying for.” Paying for with what?? We are broke and getting worse. The worst is yet to come…ALL politicians are to blame for spending money we don’t have.
The REAL cost of “defense” plus “homeland security” and the “war on terror” is MUCH larger than shown in any of these graphs and charts. Just the Pentagon budget is actually twice what the “advertised” amount is when the “black budget” and other contracting costs are factored in.
The military (defense) part is way to small…..
I agree. The pie chart is misleading because we are simultaneously paying into the Social Security fund, which largely offsets the amount paid out to us. We are also simultaneously paying into the unemployment and medicare funds. The same cannot be said for the military, agriculture, energy, etc., where we (the taxpayers) pay in and “they” take out.
Some businesses constantly complain that their taxes are too high, but then line up for their government subsidies.
Doesn’t it say ‘Not meant to be factual’ in tiny print at the bottom?
