Policy Basics: Where Do Our Federal Tax Dollars Go? — Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Someone once asked a famous bank robber why you do rob banks and the bank robber replied, because thats where the money is. If someone were to ask why do we have to make saving in entitlements and defense and the Tax Code, to get the debt and deficit under control, same answer to the first question. Because thats where the money is and anyone on the right or left who disagrees, doesn't understand this issue, doesn't take it seriously. Or is not a strong enough Leader to take on the Special Interests that would be affected by these savings.
