Monday’s Mtg, Part 4: Where our tax dollars go.

Most of you know the broad outlines of this.  Here is a pie chart showing where the federal govt (2/3 of taxes go there) spends our tax dollars.  It is from the liberal Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.  For a breakdown of state and local spending in California go here.  For CA it’s basically 75% goes to five major activities: Education 25% + health care 20% + 10% prisons + 10% public safety + 10% welfare.  In most other states the pie chart looks about the same.
