Surprised that the military part of it is as small as it is . . . and where is agriculture?? You know, all those subsidies for farmers.
It seems pretty disingenuous with how the line items are distributed. "Environmental Clean-up" is one line item, while military spending is separated into several different pots.Is there a reason for that? Other than the sticker-shock of Joe Patriot when he sees how much combat ops, military pensions, military personnel, veterans' benefits, military benefits, etc. all combined?
I believe this isn't everything, but a sampling. Apparently including everything would create a very long receipt.
