There are Only Two Things Certain in Life...

Today is a day that holds special significance for many Americans - it's tax day. After we have mailed in our tax forms by April 15th (hopefully) and they are processed, where exactly do Americans' tax dollars go?
The folks at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) have created an interesting online resource outlining exactly that, titled "Where Do Our Federal Tax Dollars Go". The CBPP's resource talks about the ways that tax dollars are used, and from education to defense and everything in between. For the visual learners out there, the resource also has helpful pie charts displaying the break down of federal tax dollar spending.
I encourage you to have a look at this handy resource and see what happens to tax dollars after April 15th!
