50% Of US Federal Spending On National Defense, Social Security, And Medicare
Does anyone else find this disturbing? I am fine with National Defense using up a huge amount of the budget. Why? Because its one of the few things the Federal government is actually SUPPOSED to do. The others are liberal babies that are a drain on us.
Medicare just shows how well the US can run Health Care. It’s a disaster.
Social Security went from a savings plan for retirement to an underfunded fiasco.
National Defense is actually what the US should do.
Budget documents provided by the Obama administration show that in Fiscal Year 2009 50% of all federal spending went to national defense, Social Security and Medicare. When the cost of veterans affairs are included, that number grows to 53%. Five percent (5%) paid interest on the federal debt, and 42% was used for everything else in the budget.
