Another year, another awesome poster from Jess Bachman showing how the United States government spent our taxes. As usual, we spend huge amounts of money on defense-related stuff. It was $664 billion this year.
Elsewhere, budgets are up at the Department of State (13 percent) and the Environmental Protection Agency (20 percent). And they're down 9 percent at the Department of Homeland Security.
And check this out: The budget for the "Executive Office of the President" is up 96 percent. That's not going to look good to the Tea Partiers (and I have some questions about it myself, actually).
