1/2 priced burgers at Sonic, btw
But here's how Shepard Smith explained where our tax money goes:
For every dollar:
Major tax services (Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security... Note 1)
Income Security (retirement, disability, other benefits ... Note 2)
Net interest on National Debt
I question these numbers. Major Spending is too broad of a term ... This could be from White House security to global warming satellites to paying some mistress to stay silent. It's too jumbled of a term.
I can not believe that they are only paying 7cents/USD on the national debt -- it has to be higher than that ... Although .... That does explain how we got into the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt
Social Security was supposed to be SEPARATE from the general tax budget. It was supposed to be self-sustaining .... I don't know why they have grouped it into this category. Interesting part, they will give the benefits to illegals but not to legal citizens who haven't earned enough "points" yet .... Grrrrrr
By "retirement" do they mean social security? I thought that was covered by category 1???!!!
Perhaps they mean the retirement of FEDERAL WORKERS?
These numbers simply do NOT make sense.
Some one explain to me please ....
