When we spend 2 cents on Education vs. 27 cents on our Military..……
THAT is why America Is Failing.
‘If you groan about Tax Day, you’re certainly not alone’.
‘Across the United States, the average taxpayer paid $11,715 in 2013 federal income taxes’.
‘The military received the largest share of that sum, $3,174′,
‘followed by health care, which received $2,662 for programs like Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program’.
‘Meanwhile, only $238 went to education programs‘,
‘and just $15.84 and $6.56 went to the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program and National Forest System, respectively’.
‘But what if Tax Day was something we could be proud of as members of a democracy? Would you feel differently about paying taxes if you knew they were going to support public services that you, your family, and your community rely on – such as public safety, roads and bridges, schools, health care, social services, and national parks’?
‘Millions of Americans file their federal income tax returns on April 15 each year with no idea what the government actually does with all that money’.
‘This is surprising, considering that individuals are our nation’s primary bill payers’.
‘NPP has also looked at each state’s average taxpayer and calculated where taxes from every state are going. These state-by-state tax receipts show the state with the highest average taxes paid (Connecticut, $18,988) and lowest (Mississippi, $7,402), and everything in between’.
‘Using a customized tax receipt calculator, you can find out exactly how the federal government spent each penny of your 2013 taxes. Look up your tax receipt right now – is your money going where you think it should’?

‘On yesterday’s radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer read from a recent Wall Street Journal article reporting that the top 1% of Americans account for nearly 30% of all federal tax revenue’.
‘To Fischer, that means that the poor and middle class families in this country “ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk” because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing’.
‘The rich, Fischer asserted “ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody”.
