Often times on CM posts, I have seen that I shouldn't complain about people on PA, because such a small portion of my taxes actually go towards those programs. Well according to my tax program, 16% of my taxes went to Medicaid, Food Stamps, & Related Programs. Another 9% went to Unemployment & Social Services. And another 36% went to Social Security, Medicare, and other Retirement Programs.
So, quit saying that your PA isn't coming from MY money.
You are welcome. = )
Edit: Here is the breakdown of the full 100%:
National Defense = 20%
Veterans & Foreign Affairs = 4%
Medicaid, Food Stamps, & Related Programs = 16%
Unemployment & Social Services = 9%
Social Security, Medicare, & Other Retirement = 36%
Net Interest on the Debt = 6%
Law Enforcement & General Government = 2%
Physical, Human, & Community Development = 7%
