This poster makes for some interesting reading:

"Death and Taxes:2009" is a representational poster of the federal discretionary budget; the amount of money that is spent at the discretion of your elected representatives in Congress. Basically, your federal income taxes. The data is from the President's budget request for 2009. It will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress by October 1st to begin the fiscal year".

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 ?
