What's sad about that diagram is just the sheer size of government, it's no wonder we have such an excessive deficit !
Also, the majority of our tax dollars go to paying the interest on the debt held by the Foreign govts such as Japan,China and SaudiArabia.
The remainder is borrowed from the FED, who sells it to foreign governments which is why we have such a massive budget deficit AND are currently
facing this economic crisis.
What ever happened to the revenues from Iraqi oil GW Bush ?
