Web graphic of the day: Your tax dollars spent

You just sent thousands of dollars to the U.S. government in an envelope with a tax form inside. Someone in your family may or may not have attended an anti-tax Tea Party rally and you may or may not have heard someone on the news railing about welfare and giveaways. Here's a first fact about your tax money: welfare and giveaways aren't the problem. They make up a fraction of the 3 percent you are paying in taxes for "education, training, employment and social services." Washington is spending most of your tax money, 17 percent, on wars-- even though neither of our recent wartime Presidents Bush and Obama have asked you for a dime to pay for what is now three military campaigns, two of which have been raging for more than half a decade at an outrageous hourly rate.
