Whether you file your income taxes and either owe Uncle Sam or begin looking for your tax refund, you might wonder, how is my tax dollar spent? Here we’ve broken down the sources of Federal tax revenue, how these have changed in the last decade, and how this same scenario could could play out in 2012, based on the proposed 2012 Presidential budget.

  1. wonder if Obama has seen this. like, what’s the difference between “health” and “Medicare?” if we get rid of everything but the government, we’d have 99.3 cents left.

  2. I’m sorry to the graphic designer, but this is really stupid. When you move the scissors it should LABEL/SHOW the diferences – not have a stupid roll over!!!!

    Come on, make it useful and understandable by showing all lables all the time. You get 5 seconds with users – this doens’t work to convey the problem.
